My parents are 60+ years old and they do deserve something special every year, wouldn't you agree? For their 33rd wedding anniversary last January 10, I commissioned a papercut artwork from Lai. Lai is one of the most creative people I know, and the sweetest, too!
We gladly worked on the concept together, I gave some elements to work with and my preferred colors. It took two weeks to make, and Lai was very responsive and showed me her progress often.
And a few days before my parents' wedding anniversary, this lovely package arrived:
This was better than what I envisioned! This masterpiece was painstakingly sketched, then cut, and hand painted by Lai herself. Absolutely beautiful!
My Mom (a former banker) loves to bake and she does it for a living now, hence the baking utensils in the artwork. My Dad is a Physician which explains the medical equipment, and I had to sneak in an eagle because he's from ADMU and he's very attached to that symbol, haha.
Of course, I just had to include a plane because we've traveled to so many places together and it's the thing we look forward to every year. And yes, my sister works for an airline company, too.
I requested for a replica of the artwork so my Dad can display this in his clinic while the original one stays at home.
I love working with Lai that I commissioned another papercut artwork for my Mama (grandma) shortly after I got these. Will post it soon!
