Remembering POPS



Having lost Rudys father this year it was a hard on him not to have his dad for his recent birthday.
I got to thinking of what I could do to make it a day he wouldn't miss his dad but remember him on all those past birthdays.
So I contacted my brother in a special ops mission to paint Rudy's favorite portrait of his father as a young boy.
From a tiny picture on an iphone my brother was able to take the photo and turn it into a painting, finished in just two short weeks and shipped for Rudy to open on his birthday.

It turned out amazing and melted Rudys heart.
This painting will always be super special to have hanging in our home.
