Call me crazy, but I have long wanted a painting of my furbabies Bax and Ollie.  Not like a realistic oil painting of them posed and dressed as Sherlock Holmes and Watson or anything- but a funky, fun piece of art that represents my silly love bugs who bring me more joy than I can even put into words. No one is ever as happy to see me when I walk in the door than those two, and their funny antics, unconditional love and snuggles have gotten me through many a tough moment. In my opinion, owning a dog is one of the best parts of life.  So when Modern Bird Studios contacted me about doing a giveaway and offering to create a super cool painting of any photograph I wanted, I knew it was time to turn my smelly little fellas into art!

Greg and Megan take a photo and using a combination of digital process and hand painting they produce a funky two color modern work of art on oak composite.  Check out my own masterpiece!

I have yet to decide where to hang it, probably in the studio, but I LOVE it!  I think this style of work would be fabulous in a nursery, family room or kids bedroom!  It doesn’t even have to be a picture of people- it would be awesome to do them of your children’s favorite toys, or your husband’s favorite car!Check out these other pieces they’ve done:
