I had seen others post photos of their Yellow Brick Home pet portraits and I’d be filled with such happiness for them and EXTREME jealousy for myself. You know the type of envy I’m talking about, the angel side of you thinks ‘good for them!’ and the devil side thinks ‘I want the goose that lays the golden egg!’.
So I commissioned one. Even hitting the ‘buy’ button was exciting! The exchanges that occurred via email about colors (hot pink!), mood (the odd couple) and ideas (I wanted it to celebrate how their differences make them so much alike) were extremely delightful. It was an awesome experience from purchase to delivery! You know how you can just sense a person is delightful, even through email. Yeah, that’s how it went. I sigh just thinking about it.
I was in the Bahamas when YBH posted the photo of my boys on Instagram and Facebook. The noise that came from me when I saw it was probably a healthy mix of teenage-girl-meets-Bieber and a hyena-in-heat. I. Was. In. Love!
Upon return from vacation, even the delivery box made me squeal! The detail on the painting is friggen amazing, I mean seriously people, this is talent – from the freckles on Melvin’s face to Jake’s wrinkles. It’s my boys, on hot pink deliciousness!
So to all of you who want one (and I’m a tad embarrassed about my immaturity) but HA, HA!!!! Me gots one!
