Kaitlyn and Mike's Painting Revealed!

I've been holding out on revealing Kaitlyn and Mike's painting in order to keep the finished product a total surprise (minor slip up happened already....take a look at the comment the bride made in THIS post...ah well).  Last night the painting was presented to the couple, so I know that it has landed in the hands of its final destination.  So....

Oddly enough, the best part of this post to me is not really the final painting, but getting to share with you my meeting with Kaitlyn's mom, Lynda...the gift giver.  Sorry to all my previous clients, but I think Lynda has topped out as my most favorite client ever.   I met her at a Starbucks, we talked for an hour and a half, she left with a painting, and I left with a box of chocolates as a bonus....can't beat that.
Really though, I was explaining to Lynda that I don't often get to see the reactions of my clients or the painting recipients, so when I get to experience this moment, it is very special to me.

And this is why I do what I do....

What a priceless reaction!

I am dying to hear how Lynda's dinner party went last night, and what her daughter's final reaction was.

Oh I could go on and on with compliments about Lynda and what a special mom she is, but you should take a look for yourself and visit her adorable blog....Lake House Lyn!

Congratulations to Kaitlyn and Mike for being the new owners of a Reenie Rose painting!  Cheers to many more years of wedded bliss, and a HUGE thank you to Lynda for being so fabulous!


  1. Loreen, you have left me speechless (and that never happens) . The journey of creating this beautiful gift for our daughter and her new husband has been amazing. I feel as if I have a new friend. Meeting both you and your Mom was such a fun afternoon and your talents speak for themselves. Kaitlyn and Mike loved the painting more than I can express and they already have a place of honor to hang it in their new home. The entire family that was here for the dinner party was happy to be able to share in this special gift and to witness Kaitlyn and Mike's reaction. You are an amazing talent and lovely person. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for capturing the sentiment and love that was put into Kaitlyn's wedding bouquet. It will be treasured for years to come.

    1. I am left without words to type! The pleasure was all mine....working with you and surprising your daughter has been a dream. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
