25 years!





Here's a little portrait of me and my hubby in celebration of 25 years together. We drove cross country with our dog on our honeymoon - yes, we camped the whole way. No honeymoon suites for us. That is okay, we treated ourselves to a cool stay in LA for the 25th - awesome! 25 years, Holy Cow!

oh, aren't you cute! i actually really like your old self-portrait... interesting that you're not looking at the viewer in the painting (but you are in the photo), and those innocent photo cows look a bit more menacing, or at least curious about you, in the painting :)

your mention of the creative life as always "moving forward" is so dead on... in fact, i was just talking with a girlfriend today about this very subject. that our creative selves are always evolving... that we are not necessarily moving toward any one single destination -- rather, we are in constant flux: blossoming, hibernating, growing, dying, regenerating. it's a good life, indeed!

thanks Nicolette and Melanie...
and thanks Kim for those observations - and how funny you were just talking about that... it is a great journey.

oh my gosh! i LOVE your honeymoon photos. it is so priceless. wow, so young. you look like teenagers...! were you? we also went camping on our honeymoon! cheers to that, and cheers to you two for 25 years. couples like you inspire me/us so much. i'm so happy for you. and that self portrait is pretty awesome, in that naive way. it is quite honest and accurate, and dang, i love the cows... big hug. xojenny

Hi Amy, I am a big fan! What you said about the creative journey is so true. I find myself painting because "I should be" instead of from inspiration quite often. I also love your "Road less traveled" post. I have painted in Provence. What an amazing place!! Kelly

thans Jenny and Kelly. Ha...we were hardly teens, 28 and 29 when we married, if you do the math we are total geezers now!

Oh and I meant to say... the cows were at our wedding, I had planned to do a painting of me with the cows and one of my hubby with the cows but that is as far as I got with my self portrait. We were married at a place with a big barn, so those cows were one of the decorations and witness to our marriage. We still have them!

I love that you had those cows at your wedding! Happy Anniversary! Love the honeymoon photo - your dog reminds me of Pono! I think you look like teenagers, too. And no, you aren't total geezers. It's all relative. My grandpa lived to be 100, so you've got a while before you are geezers in my book.
