I found an old Polaroid photo of my dad in a box.
It was starting to fade but he look so dashing in it I thought it
would make a great portrait.
I ran across Paint Your Life and they said they could turn
the old Polaroid into a portrait oil painting for me quickly, easily, and
inexpensively and the work would be guaranteed. They said they would let me ask
for modifications until I was 100% satisfied!
I decided on a 30 inch x 40 inch portrait which cost me
under $300. I was amazed at the price but this made me unsure about the quality
and if I would really be happy enough with it to give it to my dad.
I took the chance - after all it was guaranteed. My dads
photo was hand painted by real live artists. It wasn't computer generated. When
I received the oil painting I was stunned. The old Polaroid had turned into a
perfect portrait - an oil painting - on canvas - of my dad. I couldn't have been
happier except for one thing...
When I gave the portrait to my dad he was thrilled to have
it and thought it fantastic. Embarrassingly enough he said it must have cost
thousands and offered to help me pay for it. You know dads. I didn't
accept naturally, and told him it was a gift from me, and no he couldn't help
defray any of the cost. I didn't tell him how little it really cost me.
When he hung it up however, I noticed a peculiarity about
the painting that I didn't see when I had it up close. The eyes, I noticed were
looking at me when I looked at it from one side of the room and then again from
the other side. - they seemed to follow me as I walked across the room. I love
I don't know how the artist did that or if it happens on
all the painting with all the artists but it did with this one. As far as I am
concerned this painting is a masterpiece.
