Painted Silhouette Portrait

Last year after Christmas, I shared with you guys the fantastic handmade wooden toothbrush holder my dad made for me as a gift.

Well, this year my parents have done it again! I had to share.side by side silhouette portraits

Here’s the backstory: My mom has always had a framed silhouette portrait of her profile as a child. When I was growing up, I always thought it was soooo neat and told my mom I wanted to keep it.

So, instead of giving me her copy, she painted me my own version! I think it’s so amazing and thoughtful. After she painted it, my dad crafted a little wooden frame for the canvas, and my mom stained it.

Isn’t it a great idea to make a simple painting from a loved photograph as a gift? Sometimes homemade presents are the best ones.
