a family heirloom

An acquaintance of ours is a painter. You can check out some of her work here. For quite some time I've been toying with an idea for her to paint our home with us and the kids in it. After meeting with her some time back and having her come here to discuss details, it finally arrived. A Christmas present for us all. I hope it is a piece that will remain in our family for generations to come.

Oh. My. GAWD!!! I love her work, we have two of her prints hanging in our home. But to have a personlized piece would be a dream. It is absolutly beautiful. How precious to have for you all, for always.

I love the painting! That is just so special to have a custom made piece, how wonderful.

You just reminded me of a painting my Sister and I bought for my Mom one year, it had three kids on a toboggan sliding down a hill and we bought it thinking of us girls, then another was added to the mix and so we should buy her another with four of us in it ;)
