The Double Whammy

The day her beloved friends moved away, Amy emailed me. She wanted something to give her friends as a parting gift, a way of expressing her affection and thankfulness for the years of memories. She told me they lived in two townhouses and had two pet turtles but wasn't sure if it would be possible to get it all in one painting.

We emailed for a while and looked at pictures and this is what we came up with. Let's call it The Double Whammy. Two house portraits on one sheet of paper- the perfect gift for the movers and shakers in your life. (How cute are those little turtles??)

Here's Amy's response (this seriously made my day):

Oh my gosh, Michelle, you are too much! I am so touched that you got this done so quickly, knowing how important the timeline was for me, and it is absolutely GORGEOUS! I'm so, so happy and grateful. I love all of the little details -- the way you got the bricks going in the right way on each house, the turtles, the cardinals, the slight variation of brick color, the greenery. It is lovely. And you have been a complete joy to work with every step of the way. I cannot thank you enough for creating this special gift. THANK YOU!
