First off, I HAVE TO start out by saying that I am just over-the-moon for Lauren and Scott! To know that Lauren, my cousin and life-long close friend, has found her forever-person in Scott (who is truly such an upstanding, fun, and talented guy) absolutely fills my heart to the brim.
So... when she asked if I would paint something for their future first apartment together, I had nothing to say but "HECK yes!".
Their downtown Hopkins apartment is a new build, and every detail of their place feels fresh, bright, and gorgeous. Scott moved in last month, and while Lauren won't move in until after their wedding in December, she is already putting hers & Scott's personal touch all over the place. Lauren is obsessed with their white kitchen cabinets and granite counter tops. And Scott loves their dark oak furniture, and woodsy green accents.
Lauren knew right away that she wanted a large painting that would include white and all their grays, greens, and dark browns for above their couch. Both she and Scott wanted something that was elegant and interesting (but not too bold) to compliment the rest of their modern, open, and sophisticated place.
Titled: "For Lauren and Scott, December 2nd 2017".
Acrylic on canvas, 36 x 48 inches.
I couldn't be happier to have helped these future newly-weds make their first home feel that much more complete and special with this custom painting. Love you both, Lauren & Scott.
