He loved it...and was actually very surprised (and yes, happy) to have it as his gift this year!
We just love us a little equine art!
I love horses. They are such beautiful animals. So I've been enamoured with all of these pretty horse prints for a while now. And I've been wanting to add a print to our dining room. Luckily after showing them to the Hubby, he starting liking them just as much. However, because he is a photographer, he didn't want to purchase a print, he wanted to take one himself.
I was all for that!!
Luckily, we live next to a pasture just filled with lovely horses. And one day I found the Hubby out there with his camera, just talking to the horses and taking their pictures. Those horses, turns out, really love the camera. In fact, they couldn't get enough of posing for pictures. It was really quite funny!
But then the photos sat for a while. Every few days the Hubby would ask when we were going to print one up, but I would always brush it off with some complaint about the cost of framing a large print. Little did he know I had something up my sleeve.
You see, the Hubby's birthday was last week. So I chose one of our favorite prints from that series, and edited it to make it a monochromatic black on white print. Then I had it printed, and framed it in a large 30"x40" frame from IKEA (only $29.99 - can we hear a Woot Woot!)
While he was gone one evening, I put it up on the wall...and this is what he came home to...
