20 08 14

A few months ago my flatmate, Loren, frivolously stated that she really wanted a Renaissance style portrait of herself. And I guess this has been a lesson for her to be careful what she wishes for, because of course, I actually went and painted her one.

Last night was the grand unveiling. We all wore our finest clothes, Nicholas cooked an extravagant Polpo meal, Alex made a champagne punch bowl, and Doug provided classical music and kindled a digital fire. Not to mention we had our new sofas delivered earlier that day, creating an abundance of furnishings. It was quite an evening, and one we will surely hold dear for the rest of our days. Loren cried.

Here are some photos of the evening, along with the actual painting. Some of them are pretty dark, but that's just due to the ambiance of the affair. Enjoy!
