Alternatively a great alternative unique personalised gift to give to someone special in your life.

In order to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary I decided to have a portrait of their granddaughter and grandson painted by artist Michael of Paint Your Life and they were extremely happy with it, in fact my mum cried when she opened it up and saw the painting.

Memories forever

Now more than ever, celebrating special moments in life regardless of how small or big is a fantastic way to spread joy to your loved ones. Paint Your Life artists create high quality and hand painted portraits which you can cherish forever. As a painting is the best personalised unique gift to preserve those special memories and gift.

I chose to have a special photo of my niece and nephew painted in oils by Michael of Paint Your Life to gift to my parents as a belated Golden Wedding Anniversary. Why? As for the past year it has been very difficult for us all with covid restrictions preventing us all from meeting up and they in particular have missed the cuddles from their grandchildren. So by getting a painting of their grandchildren least when they are feeling a little down they can gaze up and look at their grandchildren which is a virtual hug in itself, as they bring them so much joy.

The process of ordering was very simple plus the artists are happy to alter by adding or removing things when it comes to painting from the photo provided. Also if there is anything you are not quite happy with once painted the artists are always more than happy to retouch up or alter.

Once I received the painting I took it around my parents house in which my mum opened and she plus my dad was highly surprised as they were not expecting the painting from me and highly thrilled by the likeness from the photo and painting. My mum initially could not believe it was a painting she thought it was a photo printed in large size.

Just watch her reaction and listen to what she had to say

“It’s actually captured them both amazing
Lottie with her hair and Beau”

says Valerie (my mum)

Just look at the amazing job Michael done from photo to oil painting.
