I needed a couple who had been married for years and who shared a lot of jokes together for this painting. I instantly thought of my aunt and uncle. Although they haven't spent their whole lives together, having only found each other about eight years ago, they are the perfect couple, and they are always cheerful, despite all the crazy stuff life throws at them. Plus, they are my biggest fan club. Whenever my paintings come on TV, they cheer and clap! I was very happy to paint them.
