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!
