My boyfriend and I collaborated on a painting for a friend’s wedding gift. The story of how they met was storybook and needed to be preserved in a painting… She was home one weekend from college and filled in for the fiddle player of a local folk band. He played the banjo in that band. They spent all night getting to know each other and the next day she missed her plane back to the east coast, giving them more time together. He moved to the east coast to be closer to her… the rest is history.
