Love, Love, Love...

Here's my latest project... My client is giving this to her sister-in-law as a bridal gift.  What a wonderfully, meaningful gift!  I immediately fell in love with the quote she wanted to have inscribed on the canvas -- So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.  Beautiful words that express true unconditional love.  Aaah, so romantic!  And isn't that what we all want deep down inside, someone who truly loves you to the depth that they actually feel like a part of us!  This was quite a fun project because my client wanted to color enhance the original photo.  Here are some color samples I provided early in the design process along with the original photo (You may click on each sample to see the image in a larger format).  You can see that there are some many options in creating a beautiful canvas of your life!

Original photo

Soft light

Dramatic B&W
Did you know that a traditional photo tends to lose its color within 10 to 20 years?  With the right combination of ink and canvas during the printing process, a canvas will hold its color for at least a hundred years.  It is a great way to preserve a beloved picture and, at the same time, the photo can be enjoyed in your home every day.
Love and blessings!
