Commission a Watercolor Painting for a unique anniversary gift

Having been married, for what will be 18 years this coming summer, I know the challenges that can come with finding the right anniversary gift. The first year, and all of the ones thereafter.

A commissioned watercolor painting is a unique anniversary gift that will be cherished for generations. Whether you choose a scene from the ceremony, or something different, this painting will be an unexpected and loved gift.

All you have to do is fill out the form on this page, upload an image and send me as much information as you’d like about the photo. Need help deciding on a scene? Read some suggestions below and let me know in the comments. I will get back to you within 24 hours, give you an estimate and ask some additional questions to help me create the scene. 

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

– Lao-Tzu

A unique anniversary gift they will ❤️

If you’re having trouble deciding what you should pick to commission, please let me share some ideas with you.

  • You could pick something from the engagement, the ceremony,  or your honeymoon. A special moment, hands holding, close-up of special cuff links, or holding a bouquet, all make loving scenes.
  • I have also painted the homes of parents as gifts from their children on their anniversary. 
  • I can also create something conceptual or abstract that we’d spend a little more time talking about.

Most importantly, it should be a scene that holds a special place in the recipient’s heart.
