Since today would have been my parents 40th, I thought I would share the painting I did for my mom the year after we lost dad.
I had the most amazing picture of mom and dad from my wedding. I couldn't find the printed one, but knew that I had the negatives. I had always wanted to try scanning a negative and using it, so I figure this was a great one to start with. It came out a little lighter than I was hoping, but I was able to tweak the scan and print it out in a usable way. I then used a combination of paint and medium paste to build up around the picture.
The painting didn't quite come out the way I envisioned it, but I liked the result in the end anyway.
