2 days ago I posted about a piece of art that I had commissioned for Shane for our 6th wedding anniversary. What I didn’t know was that Shane had also secretly commissioned another brilliant local South African artist, Emily Jane Long to create a piece of art for me as a gift. It was so awesome when we both pulled out these 2 flat wrapped gifts and almost immediately we both realised what they were.

Shane got Miss Emily Jane to paint me one of her beautiful belljar still lifes. The theme he gave her was ‘candy’, because candy is the traditional six year anniversary gift – I can definitely live with that! Hehe.

Take a look at how much detail goes into her work, it’s so special. I have included more examples of her stuff, so you can have a look see.

Thanks Emily Jane for my amazing amazing painting, I absolutely love it and if I could eat it, trust me I would.

    Wow! That bell jar is so realistic, I was sort of expecting to see your reflection in it. Very cool!
