I am not a huge art critic by any means. My idea of fine art is a couple of Norman Rockwell prints, some posters from the Shakespeare festival and an oil painting of my kids. In my living there hangs the aforementioned Shakespeare Festival Poster (framed of course), a picture of Buddha from some art show and a framed photograph of a swamp scene with a dock and a boathouse. It’s actually a pretty cool picture. What I don’t have are any paintings of the family. We do have plenty of photographs of the kids that hang on the wall in the stairway but nothing large in the living room yet. It’s not even the money. It’s more a matter of time and getting everyone to sit down at the same time in the same place.

Paint Your Life is a company that will take your photographs and turn them into 100% hand-painted portrait. The paintings are all done by portrait painters that are skilled in wedding portraits, child and pets portraits as well. You can have your photograph turned into an oil painting, watercolor portrait, charcoal drawing or pencil sketch and it’s very affordable as well. Paintings start at $99 and the charcoal and pencil sketches start at $69.

All of the portraits are painted by artists and are not prints or computer generated. They can also combine more than one photo into a painting. Say you have three separate pictures of your children that you like and want them together…They can do that. Check out this example…


Even more so than getting a picture of my kids it sure would be nice if I could get an oil painting of my parents and give it to them for Christmas. If you want to see what some of their customers have to say, head on over to the customer testimonials and take a gander at what they have to say. Both of my Aunt’s are professional artists and painters and the paintings that I have seen are as good as anything that I have seen them do.
