Except, canvas is always so expensive.
Meet Hugh at Zaza Gallery. (twitter.com/photocanvas).
$25 will get you an 8x10 photo canvas! Usually, they are at least double or triple that in other places.
Now, since I am not a photographer, my photo of the received canvas does not do any justice to Hugh's work.
I sent Hugh a high res touched up image courtesty of Doll Face Studio from our past client (which was also featured on Pearls Events Blog and Style Me Pretty!). I chose this image specificially because of the vibrant colors and details.
When the package arrived yesterday, I opened it in my kitchen, and ripped open the box. It was a pretty big box for such a small canvas, but it was wrapped wonderfully! The canvas itself was in a plastic sleeve, and then wrapped a few time around with thick bubblewrap, then placed into a larger box. Nice and safe. Perfect!
My husband peered over to see what I was unwrapped and when he saw the final product, he gasped! The colors, the details... it's canvas! I swear, it's brighter than the actual image!
