So if you follow Brownbettystyle on Facebook, you may have seen the awesome personal portrait that Rachele from Nearsighted Owl made for me. But if not, it is totally my pleasure to officially unveil:
I think Rachele did an amazing job of capturing me and my style (particularly with my copycat pixie!). Seriously, scoop neck shirt + cardigan + big bead necklace is pretty much my work uniform. It works, I’m not ashamed of it.
Rachele was kind enough to give away portraits to her sponsors in February so I got a pretty sweet deal – a chance to pop in to Nearsighted Owl (one of my first daily reads every morning) and a great personal portrait. But was that enough? No.
Enter my mom (hi mom!). She loved Rachele’s work too and tried to commission a portrait, only I beat her to it. So she had Rachele do one of David:
Which is ALSO amazingly awesome! He’s slowly getting used to being immortalized in crafty ways :) This is also David’s signature look and she captured it to a T! He’s just as hot as a cartoon as he is in real life.
Rachele also sent us one of us side by side, which I want to get framed and hang on my wall.
So, the moral of the story is: I love them. This is basically just a post to show them off. Hope you don’t mind! I don’t think Rachele has listings for portraits in her Etsy store at the moment, but you should stop by and tell her what a great job she did. Fingers crossed, you’ll be seeing a little bit more of her around here as she may be guest posting soon!
