Artwork Description

For our third anniversary, I took my husband, all our pets, and myself and placed them in this classic Jan Van Eyck painting.

That is the seckond such a good idea I;ve seen (after a poster with Mona Lisa as a rubber-women in circus;have you seen it?).
I wonder Regan how did you work with this artwork?

I'm happy you could read it back there! The curly script is enhanced by the house geckos that are hanging out around there (there's 6 of them, and two anoles... a bearded dragon... a tokay gecko... a mali uromastyx... leopard gecko... curly tail lizard...)

I'm holding Cooper the chinchilla, and there's a degu named Bilbo on my husband's shoulder, too...

Yes, there is a 'Mini Me' in the mirror, plus my hubby and one other mystery person, maybe my evil twin!

LOL - this is too wonderful! Especially for an art nerd like me - this is so very cool! The Arnolfini Marriage is one of my favourite paintings of all time. I love the tag on the wall, hehe. Well done!!!

What a brilliant concept! I'm delighted to see someone turn van Eyck's painting into something equally vibrant and interesting. This is a great present and very well executed. The colours are fabulous. Did you put a miniature version of yourself in the mirror on the wall? I see you put your signature in, very well done! Laughing out loud
