Finding the Beauty in Life. Appreciating the Beauty that is here. That's how I felt at this recent Marriage Proposal that I handled recently. The man who hired me to surprise his intended with this Caricature ~ also arranged the setting. On the Gazebo in a local Park.
He had arranged to bring his intended for a beautiful walk on a beautiful day. And I was to be there set up as though I just happened to be out there also enjoying the beauty of the day. But actually ready with the Proposal Caricature and also a Caricature of their parents. So I could pretend to draw them on this beautiful day and..........
The joy of the moment. If that's the way I felt, I could just imagine how the Couple felt. When I looked out of the Gazebo toward the trees, I saw the two pink blossoming trees felt like the Couple that was in love. The scene felt like it was stepping towards the Gazebo, and I could almost envision those solid rocks to spell out Love. But we didn't need the words. We had the feeling.
