When I was asked to paint Erin, I was quite impressed with her lovely picture, and even more awed when I got to corresponding with her via email, that she was a total doll. The picture pretty much speaks for itself, My old friend Ben married a Babe. Ben wanted the painting of his wife to admire when she wasn’t home. They make a stunning couple, both so lovely.

Congrats you two.

Since Ben initiated the portrait, I asked him a few questions.

Is there anything else you would like to share about the photograph you chose to get painted?

It’s from a photo album she surprised me with. I always try to take pictures of her but she’s pretty modest. She’s great. It’s no secret I’m lucky to have her.

How did you hear about Marina’s portraits?

Marina’s art is pretty well known. Having seen her talent and ability to capture the beauty of others, she was the only artist I considered.

Are you happy with the way the painting turned out?

Very – Thank you Marina!!

Thanks Ben and Erin! Much love to both of you Always <3
