A Fabulously Unique Wedding Gift


My Uncle Harry offered up a wedding gift idea that wasn't your typical china place setting or bedroom linens. He asked if we would be open to him creating a painting for us.

After we enthusiastically agreed, Harry got to work on a Georgia O'Keef style painting of a lily. The colors, which he also ran by us, will be perfect for our living room.

The painting was completed a few weeks back. Harry and his partner planned to have lunch with us in Atlanta this past Sunday but had to reschedule because he wasn't feeling well. Instead we'll meet up in two weeks. To satiate my desire to see the finished work, he sent us a picture. The 30'' by 40'' painting is going to look great on our wall!

What a great wedding gift. Thanks Uncle Harry!
