1st Anniversary gift

Hi


So dh and I decided to combine christmas and anniversary gifts (Married 17 December 2011) so we figured they were close enough and as we are struggling a bit cash wise (he was retrenched 3 months before the wedding- without notice or a payout - another long story, we are still dealing with debt he accurred due to that), we figured this way we could spend a little more... This is what I bought him, he has a great love for planes:


Don Bell Artwork


It's a print but will be framed. It's done by an artist from a city very close to my home town...

My mom fetched it cause we spending Christmas there, so I haven't seen it yet but can't wait... So what do you think?

Thanks :) thankfully he got a job starting april this year and we have made major inroads into his debt but there is still quite a bit. By the end of this year we should have overdraft and credit card cleared, then it's just his car and student loan, we are grateful to have gotte up to date on these, so his credit record hasn't been affected.

:) Thanks everyone..


@kplusd, I'm sure he would be willing to post it, he does do paintings from photos... Plus he charges in rands which would make it cheaper for you guys over there... It's roughly R7.50 to $1.00 I think

Thanks. I wish I could've gotten one of the bigger ones, but our budget just wouldn't allow it. He does such great work and to think he lives 45 mins from where I grew up and never knew about him. One of the images speaks of an air strip near my grandparents farm, which for me would have been super special but I couldn't afford that one.
