My dear sweet mother-in departed this life June 4, 2013. I promised myself I would get a painting made of her since have no pictures of my mother-in-law in our home. When I seen Paint Your Life on Instagram, I knew this would make the perfect Father`s Day gift for my husband.....and I was right!!!!!

Painted for Velma  Frederick, MD

My husbands grandmother passed away a few months after our oldest turned 1, the last pictures that we have of her are from his 1st Birthday, I wanted to do something different for my husband for Christmas this year and get him something that was personal, special, and would mean the world to him. He was very close to his grandmother and took her death pretty hard. So I sent to PaintYourLife.com a picture of his grandmother holding our oldest on his 1st birthday and a picture of myself holding our youngest on his 1st birthday. I had them basically put the two pictures together, so that it looked like she was holding both of them, the finished product was amazing. And to say he LOVED IT is an understatement, he cried like a baby! Mission Accomplished!!

I purchased a painting that combined two separate photos of my grandparents on both my maternal and paternal side. When all my grandparents were alive, they never took a picture together that was just the four of them. I gave the painting to my parents for Christmas and their reactions were filled with so much joy and tears. My experience with Paint Your Life was great, and I`ll definitely be recommending this company to anyone who wants to capture a special moment in a painting.

"My husband gave me a painting of my father and I dancing at our wedding. My dad passed away last year and this picture captured his pride and happiness that day, while also capturing his spirit and my awe of him. I stare at this picture and just cry because it's like he can jump off the painting. That's how real it feels. I just wanted to thank whoever did this for giving me a gift that will Always keep on giving. Thank you for this Unbelievable gift."
