Venice, how I miss you!

Today, I thought I would share with you a wonderful giveaway that I happened to win from Diane Clancy's Art Blog. Diane creates the most amazing art in bold, vibrant colors. She has an Etsy shop where she sells art cards, greeting cards, and art prints in many different sizes. The giveaway was for a 16 x 20 rolled canvas from UPrinting. After much debate and family voting, we selected a photo taken by our daughter while we were in Venice a few years ago. It is a marvelous view of the Grand Canal.

I cannot tell you how beautiful this came out--much better than I had expected. UPrinting is very easy to work with and they guide you every step of the way. There are proofs before your photo/artwork is printed and suggestions on how to correct any problems. Ignore the white borders above and below the photo--this is because of the ratio the photo was originally taken at. We chose to go ahead because we really liked the photo, and I know I can work around the borders. The canvas is sharp and the colors are vivid--as good or better than the original photo. I cannot be more pleased with the result. Thank you so much, Diane, for having this giveaway!

Have a wonderful weekend!
