Pop Art For Me

It was my birthday earlier this week. I forgot. I'm just that old.

No. I'm kidding. I didn't forget. And neither did my friends and family. *gush*

In fact, one gift comes with memory to hold forever. For it is one of those 'I'll run into a burning house for.' Not that I ever plan to prove that statement.

But really, it's that close to my heart. And this makes complete sense, cause this gift giver is really close to my heart.

A few years back Twirly and I were admiring a canvas portrait of a friend's son. Done in a two tone technique, it literally pops off the wall. (What is it with me describing artwork I would know?)

Anyhoo, as with most things that grab at me, I exclaimed, I must get that done for my girls!

Fast forward to late last year when I took what I thought was a really cool photo of the girls sleeping. Their heads turned in formed a perfect heart. And they were peacefully sleeping. My angels. See below?
Somewhere, somehow, millions of miles away, Twirly knew just what to do. And this is the canvas artwork I recieved in the post today. (It is 100x more gorgeous in person. Remember, it pops!)

I love love love it. Thank you Twirly!

Oh it's so neat! I see why you love it so much. I'd love to have a couple of those for the blank but nicely painted wall going up my stairs.
