Collaboration: All I Need to Get By

Working alone is an easy way to get into a good, deep, rut.
Left to my own devices, I've proven I only ever paint pink florals, so it was a welcome respite from my own tastes to work with this darling client and her purpley-blue and silver palette.

For her first anniversary gift to her husband, she wanted some lyrics from their song "You're All I Need to Get By."  They wouldn't all fit on the size we chose in the style she preferred, so we got creative and kind of reworked the song to fit our needs (shhh....Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell will never know). Then, she sent me photos from her wedding and current home decor to give me a sense of what colors would look best, and requested some soft floral embellishments to tie it all together. I pulled in some silver to add a little shimmer to the gray lettering and think it brightened things up just enough.

I am so happy with how they turned out and cannot wait to see what they look like framed!
Wishing you both many many more years of happily wedded bliss, with lots of Motown music soundtracking your days.
