A picture may be worth a thousand words, but if the picture is not rendered with an artistic flair, most of those words will end up being the word “moist.” Keep your imagery full of color and free of unpleasant sounds with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a 16"x20" oil portrait on canvas, based on a photograph of one figure, from Paint Your Life (a $199 value including $20 shipping cost). This Groupon's value can also be applied toward a different portrait form of your choice.
Paint Your Life’s crafty paintbrush pushers translate photographs into personalized paintings using a variety of artistic mediums such as oil, charcoal, and pastel. Customers begin the process by uploading a photo with one figure they wish to have interpreted, such as a family scene, a landscape, or a particularly appetizing burrito. To customize their portraits, subjects can mix and match elements from different photographs or assign a specific artist to the project if one of the examples in the gallery particularly catches your eye. Once you’ve approved an editor-designed mockup, the painters—who are assigned based on your preferred medium—set to work composing a work of art suitable for hanging in the home or in the office next to other prized tokens indicating success, such as your Congressional Medal of +5 Dexterity and the former boss you had stuffed and mounted. Once the painting is complete, a photograph of the work is uploaded to Paint Your Life’s website, where you’ll give it a final review and request any final modifications before it is shipped to your doorstep in a specially-suited art tube.
- Thinking I was just bias [sic], I was pleased when I heard the reactions from other people. Last week, we had a party and invited about 45 of our friends. As I gave the tour of our new house, every single person stopped in front of the painting, ooohed and ahhhed, and asked where in the world I had it done. I was so proud. – The Pixel Boutique
- When I received the painting, I was totally blown away! It was amazing! The quality and workmanship was excellent. – An Island Life
