A Tree Grows in Louisville

Here is the most romantic commission I've had to date.  

Blaine and Carson Lawrence got married on October 5, 2013 in Louisville, Kentucky.  Blaine wanted to give Carson a special gift on their wedding day: a painting to memorialize the location where they decided to spend their lives together.  Blaine sent me some photos of the tree under which they got engaged, and I painted and wrapped it for him.  It was so hard to keep this project a secret!  

I hope they'll have fond memories of the beginning of their marriage every time they look at it.  Best wishes to the happy couple!
