We asked them if we could come over one afternoon to take quick photos of the two of them. They had no idea what we were up to!
So we worked on it these two paintings together, while taking breaks from all of our other work. We were both super busy at that time, but this was welcome work.
Because things were getting to close to Christmas, and the framing shops were all too busy to take on work to be ready before Christmas, Chris decided to make two beautiful pickled pine frames. He made the pickling stain himself, and I loved them! I want to frame all of our work like that now! (It's nearly white, with a bit of natural grain still showing). So pretty.
We told them we had something to drop off quickly the evening before we left the city. We'd wrapped the pieces up so that Jin got the painting of Celine, and Celine got the painting of Jin. Their expressions were perfect when they opened them!
To see a really sweet blog post from Celine, and to see the pieces hung on their wall in their frames, here is a link.
Thanks for being the most fun subjects, Celine and Jin, Mea and Mojo!
