Going Gothic

 Kent and I went to our ward Valentine's Dance last night, where Kent was able to play DJ. With his digital collection of music, which takes more than 40 days to hear if you listen 24 hours per day, the hard part was whittling it down to four hours of dance tunes. We had a great time, a good turnout, and a photographer from our ward who took couples' pictures in front of a green screen. By this morning he had turned us into a piece of art (you may see the resemblance to the piece titled "American Gothic", though Kent does have a lot more hair than the original - we won't even mention the double chin of Mary). If you click on the image you will see the detail and how it actually looks quite a bit like a painting. We think he did a great job!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I know, Kent looks great. I had to zoom it to see if I really have a double chin like that, but it's part of the painting. The woman in the painting has a long face, so when he cut mine out to put on her head, it didn't quite cover all of her chin/s. Oh well. It's really cool how he made the texture on our faces match the texture of the painting. I don't think you can zoom in on a posted photo, but up close Kent's whiskers look like they were painted on.
