Lately I've been spending more time doing commissions that are destined to be wedding gifts for people I don't know, than painting gifts for friends. But, in anticipation of my friends Anna and Dan getting married in June, I have jumped back on the ignore-the-registry bandwagon.
They met each other while working at Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, Massachusetts (conveniently, where I met them, too!). Long before they were engaged, I was informed I would be a bridesmaid at the wedding, so I have been planning on painting them this, my favorite view of the street the theatre is on, for about five years now. I was very happy to finally get the opportunity to paint it, and also to give a wedding present ahead of schedule!
