This series of paintings tells a love story. A girl meets a boy one night in an English bar, sparks flew, love blossomed and they later got married in Chatsworth House. Their journey continued to America, where they made a beautiful home together and started a family.
The bar in question no longer exists, but the building does. So between Google Streetview, an old photo of the bar signage taken from an odd angle at night, and a fuzzy photo of the couple on the night they met, we were able to piece the scene together.
A building can mean a lot to us. We may have been in it one night, one day or years. Either way, if something special has happened there, we'll treasure it for all time.
Do you have a building that has special meaning to you and someone else? A portrait makes a lovely keepsake, and can inspire those happy memories too.
You can find more painted portraits over on the gallery page.
