Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad - my special painting for MMM this week....theme "Metalics"




Hi Everyone...


Today is my Mom and Dad's Anniversary....It's hard to believe that 41 years ago...My Mom and Dad were busy at their wonderful Wedding....


I feel so blessed to be so close to my parents and to spend almost everyday with them in some way....


They are the most giving and loving people and I feel blessed that our son is spending time with them whenever he gets a chance....


I am submitting this watercolour painting I made for them to Mixed Media Monday this week...the theme is "metalics" and I love using a mix of my liquid acrylic metalics in these watercolour paintings....


I hope you enjoy it !!!


P.s. I have been having so much fun with custom work that I decided to open up a new Etsy Shop dedicated to creating custom pieces....



Hugs


Diana

Diana, this is such a lovely lovely post!
It was my parents anniversary last week too! They've been married 35 years and I only hope that I'm as happy as them when I get to their age. When couples are together as long as your parents and my parents, it certainly is something to be admired, isnt it?
I love that painting too, they must love it.
Hmmm... I must try those metallic acrylic paints. It looks great and really does make the dress look magical :-)

Yvonne said...

wow, great painting. I am sure your parents will love it.
