Take your Photo to an Amazing Painting with Paint Your Life!


Do you have a photo that you would love to keep as a family heirloom? Have you thought about having it painted? Now you can! I was given the opportunity to have the folks at Paint Your Life take my photo and turn it into a fabulous oil painting and what an amazing job they did!  

The process is super easy:  you decide what medium you want to use:  oil, pencil, chalk, watercolor, acrylic or pastel. Decide  on the size you want and which picture you want them to use. You can also chose your frame, and many other choices. You can even put people from different pictures together if you want! I scanned this photo of my Mom and Dad to www.paintyourlife.com:
I love that they give you the ability to see the final product every step of the way and YOU have the final approval. They will redo it until you are 100% satisfied! I had them redo different portions at least 5 times (yes, I'm fussy)! They didn't give me a single problem!

I chose to have the background lightened and a few cosmetic changes made that my parents had done through the years. This painting was very important to me because my Dad passed away this past May and I wanted something amazing to give my Mom. 


Each picture is 100% hand painted and signed by the artist! It came out great! The light you see on the painting is from my Mom's room lighting and not part of the painting. It's not easy to instruct a senior citizen on the fine art of sending pictures! :)

With weddings, graduations, Mothers and Fathers Days and birthdays coming up, NOW is a great time to have your painting started! They are truly fantastic gifts and something that will be treasured by future generations.

You can find Paint Your Life on their website HEREYou can see many examples of their work and with all of the options available, I am sure you will find something you want to have done! 

Disclosure:  I received this product to help form my opinion and facilitate my review, however my opinion remains my own.

  13. Wow that is beautiful. I had to check out the prices because I thought there was no way to afford something like that. The cost is really reasonable. I have a picture of my great gandmom I would love to get done
