I’ve always liked the idea of turning a favorite photo of my child into a piece of artwork. But a lot of those Warhol-eque services just look like a computer novice took a Photoshop 101 class, and went nutty with the filters. What ever happened to art made by actual artists?
That’s exactly what you get from the custom photo painting service offered by NYC’s very chic Trunk’t Gallery. You pick the canvas size and the two colors you’d like, approve a digital proof, and then an artist goes to work hand-painting your piece. No silkscreening or digital printing here; this is the real deal. In just 2-3 weeks, you’ve got a piece of beautiful art that only rivals the original subject.
The 10×10 canvas which starts at just $199 is an extraordinarily reasonable gift for a new mom or a very special grandparent. But if I were you I’d go for the 24×30. You know you’re not going to be able to take your eyes off it anyway–why even bother trying. –Liz
