The woman on the left was my daughter`s great grandmother who past away 2 years ago, and the woman on the right was my daughter`s aunt who past away last November. My daughter was very close to them both. This gift was for my daughter`s graduation this May 21st. As you can see in the video, she was overtaken by emotions at first sight. We all were, as no one knew I had purchased it. This picture is priceless and so meaningful. Thank you so much!

I wanted to do something special for my niece who’s graduating high school this year. I wanted something meaningful and something she could have forever. In her painting, artist Anne, captured every detail and every ounce of love that my niece shared with her father, who passed away years ago. Two pictures came together into one beautiful piece. The painting is of my niece in her graduation uniform with her father next to her. She loves everything about it & I cannot thank you enough for this beautiful image that we get to keep forever.

My sister was killed in a bank shooting on Jan 23, 2019. She left 3 children behind one of them is my niece who is graduating this year. I wanted to get her a graduation gift that would be meaningful. My sister will never be able to take a picture with her so I choose PaintYourLife to make that reality come true. We love it!! It brought us to tears. Thank you to the artist that painted it.
