Mr. and Mrs. Schmidt


22″ x 26″ mixed media. Drawn and painted on board. 2012.

This artwork was copied straight off of a printed photograph taken by a good friend, Stephan Arias from Southern California. He’s a freelancer specializing in engagement and wedding photography. Check out his site: Stephan Arias Photography


It was the best I could do as a wedding gift to my sister Kim and brother-in-law, Scott. It’s been a year since I walked down the aisle. 😉 I love them and pray for them. They do not want to have any children. Zip. Nada. Forever. And I think it’s a shame. But I understand. Maybe it’s because they deal with enough kids every single day of the week, and the thought of having a few at home makes them hurl. They did however, bring up the possibility of using me as a surrogate mom. But if they are going to borrow my uterus, I want a cockapoo, a chocolate labradoodle, and a Toyota Prius, Hybrid.
