Tiffany B Chanel x Muses!

One day in January my friend Shawn called me and said he would like for me to do a commission piece for his friend as a surprise. He was the best man at his wedding and he wanted to make sure his gift was unique and personal. He sent me their engagement picture and I went to work! I did not know the people I was painting personally, which made me focus harder to capture them as perfect as possible. While walking around at Dance Africa we ended up in eyes view and from there we knew the connection automatically. They told me how they were surprised with the painting and the story made my day. It is always an amazing feeling to finally meet your muse after studying a face for weeks or months. You can look a picture for so long that eventually you start to feel like you do know the people you are creating. It was such a beautiful feeling meeting this beautiful couple and hearing how much they enjoyed their wedding gift!
