A Dream View

This was an honour to paint. The sister of a dear, dear friend, who I have known and loved all the way back to elementary school and who was the MC at my wedding, contacted me about a Christmas gift for him. She wanted to give him and his partner a painting that featured the stunning view from their recently completed dream home. I haven't seen the house or view in person, so I was nervous about getting the elements right and making sure it was recognizable. Thankfully I have now received messages from them both and the painting was a hit 💖.

This is officially the first time I have attempted mountains and it was a fun challenge! I now look forward to visiting these long-time friends in Invermere someday and maybe bringing my paints along to explore this non-prairie landscape.
