I've been wanting to link to this ever since I bought it, but I'm never sure if my husband might randomly read my blog and I wanted it to be a surprise.
My hubby is one of those guys who pretty much goes out and buys himself whatever he wants. Thus, it's really difficult to think of a good gift for him that he wouldn't have gotten himself. When I ran across a link to Austin artist Kennon James' Black Faerie print, I knew I had a winner:
The price was right, so I ordered a print and took it to my favorite shop to be matted and framed. This was back in early March, so I ended up hiding it in my closet for weeks, waiting to present it.
Finally, I gave it to the birthday boy before his party on Saturday. He loved it and wants to hang it on the wall in the studio where he'll see it when he's sitting at the mixing console (which is most of the time). He was a little concerned that it might be "too much" for more conservative clients, but I think it'll be fine.
Since I bought the print, Kennon has become one of my regular blog readers and commenters. How cool is that? I enjoy his blog too (particularly the fish) and I hope to buy more of his artwork in the future.
