For our anniversary, we decided to give one another a painting of our favorite place in the world, Florence Island in the beautiful Thousand Islands NY. What we received was a gift of a lifetime. (Literally, we hope this painting will be passed down generation to generation by our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren)
When we commissioned artist Paul Taylor , we received a beautiful oil painting of the exact replica of our island, by capturing EVERY detail and then some. We hung it over our fireplace at our main home so we can gaze at the painting and feel like we are always on our island.
Paul kept us in the loop as the painting progressed. He sent pictues, videos and we even had the chance to stop by as much as we wanted to visit the work in progress.
The day of unveiling was an exciting moment when Paul, and his wife June, came to deliver the painting to our home and helped us decide just the right spot for it.
The painting remains in our home and our family finds something new each time they look at it. We thank Paul for his keen eye, steady hand and most of all his creative and artistic ability. Not only do we have the most beautiful oil painting of the most beautiful spot in the world, but we have friends for life. Thanks Paul for everything! And June, thanks for letting Paul vanish into his studio to bring our island to life.
