2008, 36” x 24”, acrylic on specially-prepared canvas
Recently ENGAGED, a gentleman came to me to enlist my services in creating a very special surprise engagement gift for his lady. She had always wanted to have a special glamour photoshoot done, so what we planned was this: We were to schedule a shoot with her, and then he was to present this shoot and a nice collection of fine prints to her as a Christmas gift. Behind the scenes, however, I was creating an original painting of her on canvas from the photos taken. I added the engagement ring to the image for him.
On Valentine’s Day 2008 he proposed at a luxury suite in Las Vegas. When she said “Yes” he unveiled the original painting of her wearing the ring. I understand that it was a memorable moment. I very much enjoyed being a part of this joyous occasion for such a beautiful couple.
