Giveaway & Review: Custom Canvas Painting (16"x20") [CLOSED]

"Room to Play" Product #2

If you are looking to redecorate your little one's bedroom or playroom, but want to create a space that is unique to your child's personality, then you should definitely consider a custom canvas painting from Avery Marie and Me Creations. A hand painted work of art adds much more charm to a room than a poster print.


Our 3-1/2yr old daughter has a new obsession with frogs . . . well, actually frogs accompanied by anything princess-related. When I saw a frog prince and fairytale castle painting on Avery Marie and Me Creations, I knew I wanted something like this to hang by my daughter's bed. The only thing was that this painting was slightly more somber and dramatic than I wanted for my preschooler's room. I wanted to something that was more light and whimsical. When I told this to Tricia, the artist behind these beautiful paintings, she created this version of the fairytale castle and frog prince especially for my little princess.


Please take a closer look at the colors and brush strokes used to create this masterpiece. I was so thrilled with the results. It seemed like Tricia read my mind and was able to put what I had envisioned onto canvas.


Aside from adding a sawtooth hanger on the back, this painting came ready for hanging. Since the edges are also painted on the stretched canvas, no frame was required.


Needless to say, my daughter was delighted with the painting. It really sparks her imagination about what it is like to be a princess living in a castle. This painting is now hanging right by her bed, where she can see it as she drifts off at night. I can only imagine what kind of princess dreams she has after she falls asleep.
