I had to drop many a hint for a third painting to commemorate our three years together. (Sifting through girlfriend subtlety isn’t necessarily Bill‘s strong suit. Even when I’m not being subtle.) But it all paid off. Bill locked himself in his studio for a day leaving me to wonder “Are old episodes of Pushing Daisies really that much more interesting than I am?” – And then leaving me to smile. And squee.
This is the first painting gift he’s done for me where he’s depicted in the scene, too – Aww! And yes, that’s the first Totoro panda you’ve ever seen.
Let’s hear it for the boy!
P.S. I HOPE EVERYONE RECOGNIZES HOW AWESOME MY HAIR LOOKS RIGHT HERE.
