Artistic Photo Canvas

I've been meaning to do this for a while. Several years ago, I had a canvas made of a mosaic of family pictures. It came out OK but I wasn't completely satisfied so next time I decided to give Artistic Photo Canvas a try and I was absolutely delighted with the result. On one order, a reprint of a photo taken in the 1920's, the APC rep called me to see if I wanted them to do any retouching on the photo! I was pleased and impressed that there was someone actively tuning the process to make sure my canvas came out the best it could be. To my astonishment, I now find that I've now ordered 11 canvases through APC!

Here is a picture of the latest - a photo that Meg took years ago in Fort Worth, TX of circus elephants being led through the streets to be watered. I'm again delighted with the result - though we're still looking for it's permanent place in our home.

If you're thinking of getting a canvas made, I highly recommend these guys - they do awesome work!

Palazzo Salimbeni (again)

Slight color re-work of Meg's picture from Siena. What a beautiful and amazing experience - especially after a delicious Italian meal at Taverna di Cecco. Turns out this is home to one of the world's oldest banks!

Mono St. Pieters

A retro monochrome shot from the Gent St. Pieters train station. Sometimes after a very long week of meetings, this is what it feels like...

Equal time to dogs: caught Brandy in the sun as well in a very mellow mood...

The light is getting brighter as the seasons change and the animals seek it out. Here is an image of our fuzzy cat Deva sitting in a sunny window.
