Exactly nine years ago today I went on a very romantic, well thought out, hilarious, interesting date with a guy who I had been secretly adoring for months. He then became my friend, then my boyfriend, then not my boyfriend, then my boyfriend again, then my fiance, and now my husband and the father of my children and my favorite person in all the land. I made a painting that is almost as bright and comforting as the feelings that come from remembering these little "anniversaries." Sometimes I get an image in my head and I spend all afternoon getting it out on canvas... this was one of those afternoons. Enjoy!
