When Brent, a friend-turned-client approached me about helping him create a meaningful painting for his friends’ wedding, I jumped at the opportunity. Having just had my own wedding last year, I was thrilled to help him revisit a treasured memory shared with friends and create something beautiful and lasting out of it in the form of a painting.
The shared memory Brent wanted painted comes from a meaningful moment created while working as a camp counsellor with the couple. Together they created a model of a boat at sea during a stormy night, with footsteps emerging from the vessel. The entire model was to represent courage. The wedding gift was meant to be more than a simple throwback to this time, but a way to commemorate the summers spent together, and the happy memories shared between friends.
