It’s no secret that along with makeup, one of my great passions in life is photography. An artistic expression that emerged in my late 20′s, it’s something I find highly enjoyable from concept, execution, and all the way to editing. Although I’ve always had fun with cameras, it wasn’t until I became a mom that I became serious about this craft, and a lot of my practice came from gallivanting about on adventures with my little boy.
We are lucky to have annual passes to a local botanic garden that I make sure to renew every year. It’s a lovely place and their flowers and plants are perfect photography subjects – you’d never guess it was once a landfill (seriously!). A few years ago I even had an online Etsy shop where I sold some prints of my work, including this cherry blossom photo that I’ve always wanted to have on canvas.
Canvas prints are another great passion of my life – I absolutely adore the way a canvas presents photos and art, and would love to have a home covered in them at some point in my life. When Printcopia gave me the opportunity to have a 11 x 14 canvas made, I knew exactly which photo to choose.
The Printcopia ordering process is extremely easy – there is no guess work and you have the opportunity to proof your print before submitting your order. My canvas arrived within a week and was absolutely gorgeous. The colors are true, vivid, and the canvas is held up by a sturdy wooden frame.The prices are reasonable, making Printcopia an excellent resource for Holiday gifts.
My other great passions? Maybe they’ll find their way on Painted Ladies at some point, but I’ll give you a hint: car karaoke.
