Old Photos into New Paintings

I'm always honored to receive requests like this one.

A customer purchased a Family Portrait and then sent an email explaining how close his wife is to her grandparents, specifically her grandfather who is now aging and poor in health. He told me how instrumental her grandparents had been in her childhood and how this portrait would mean so much to them both.

This customer wanted me to recreate an old photo of his wife when she was young laying in the grass with her grandpa, both smiling and enjoying each other's company (above).

How sweet is that? Major props to the husband for being so considerate of his wife!

Here's how the portrait turned out...
