A Gummy Bear Wedding

Commissions, Paintingcarla2 Comments

Thought I would share this little funny painting with you.  This was one of my favorite commissioned pieces that I have ever done!!! I just loved the funny story behind it.  A girl I work with commissioned a piece to give to her friends as a wedding present.   So the story goes something along the lines of this:

Once upon a time there were a group of friends that went to college together at Central Washington University.  Their favorite thing to do on the weekends was to PARTY IT UP..... of course!  They would always head to the Starlight Lounge for gummy bear martinis. (I have never heard of a gummy bear martini, but I HAVE TO TRY ONE!)

Here is there wedding portrait!!!! That is them standing there in front of the Starlight Lounge with a gummy bear peeking out the window! He is now a firefighter, so it is extra funny to have him in his uniform holding her in a wedding dress!  Ha! Ha! I think this is going to make the perfect bathroom painting!

I have no idea who the couple is, but I can tell you......when I finished this painting...I hung it in my kitchen for a few days and FELL IN LOVE WITH IT!  It made me smile EVERYDAY!
