Happy Birthday Husband/Friday Archive

Happy Birthday Luke!

In honour of my man, I thought I would combine Luke’s birthday and The Friday Archive.Portrait of Luke

This is a portrait that I painted of Luke back in 1999. We had been married for a year, and he was away for the weekend, so I took the chance to paint. It was based on a photo that I had taken two years earlier, when we were engaged.

I am no Rembrandt, but I really enjoyed painting it all those years ago. It is the only portrait I have painted, mainly I have stuck to landscapes and still lives. Some purists would argue that a painting of a photograph is not a real portrait, but hey, I’m no purist. Here is a look at what I looked like on the same day…

And this is where the painting hangs, in great company on our kitchen wall.

Have a great day Mr.

  1. I love the vantage point of the photograph and portrait! It’s a cool view and unexpected. I started a portrait of my husband long ago and got stuck…you are making me think about going back and finishing 🙂
