5th Wedding Anniversary: Wood | A Deserving Wife and Mom Receives a Very Special and Unique Fifth Wedding Anniversary Gift!

Celebrating a 5th Wedding Anniversary: A Unique Gift Idea That Won’t Ever Be Forgotten

Meet Mark and Aynsley.

They’ve been married for five incredible years.

Mark, being the thoughtful and caring husband that he is, wanted to make their 5th Wedding Anniversary spectacular. Mark came up with the genius idea to surprise her with an original painting from my aspen and birch tree collection – the traditional gift for a fifth wedding anniversary is wood after all!

He chose this work of art, “Canadian Autumn 11” a colourful fall aspen tree painting full of vibrant colourful leaves and thick impasto texture. My favourite part of this painting is the little peek of green and gold hidden beneath the peeling tree bark.

I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to celebrate one of life’s incredible milestones with great people like Aynsley and Mark. It’s an honour to paint for people who love and enjoy my paintings as much as I did creating them. Thank you for including me on your 5th Wedding Anniversary!

Here’s what the happy couple had to say:

“Let me tell you, pictures do not do it justice; it’s beautiful! My wife will love it. Thanks again, 

-Mark.”

Nothing compares to the feeling I got on Saturday morning when I read this message that Aynsley posted on social media:

“OMG OMG OMG!! Mark just surprised me with a Melissa McKinnon painting for our anniversary! Holy! Words can not describe the simultaneous shock and joy I felt when he gave it to me. I LOVE her work and have been wanting one for so long. It’s already  a part of our home!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart you two! I hope your new painting, “Canadian Autumn 11”  brings you a lifetime of happiness and joy. Every time you look at it, may you remember your beautiful wedding day and every incredible anniversary that follows.

Happy 5th Wedding Anniversary Aynsley and Mark!!
