That’s fantastic, BC! Well done. Also, you are a brave man to attempt to paint your beautiful wife. It could have turned out badly, but you’ve done her proud. It’s a great representation of a beautiful person.

I can remember when y’all got married. How long has it been now? Congrats!!! Great work!!

Edit: Also, I notice you omitted the necklace. Any particular reason?

Ahaha that's really silly.

I'm glad you feel I did her justice!

We just hit our five year wedding anniversary back in July.

Wild to think that the Hubski family has been around that long.

I still remember fondly in college when I'd bake a pizza and eat the whole thing while commenting and browsing around this site. I'm very grateful for its existence.

Good eye!

I left it out because I felt it was a detail that would have distracted from the overall impact of the image. In hindsight, I would have also liked to omit the branches in the background.
