What an amazing gift and fun activity to do with someone special. I ordered our paint by numbers kit as a gift for Christmas and we just got to finish it yesterday. I absolutely love this picture and can't wait to frame it.
I sent My Paint by Numbers a copy of a photo of a very colorful horse. I received my kit a couple of weeks later. The painting turned out so nice I'm framing it and giving it to a friend who is a horse lover. It will make the perfect birthday gift! Here's a pic of the photo and the finished painting.
The woman who is depicted in this painting had a wonderful German Shepherd named Ben. Ben was a star, floppy ears and all. He was so big we think he may have been a cross between a German Shepherd and a Great Dane. Any how, Ben died two months ago. I wanted to make something special for my friend, something personal. I sent a photo to My Paint By Numbers and they were able to re-create it. She was so touched when she received the painting. Her new German Shepherd was completely fascinated by it, as if he knew Ben was there (that's him at the lower left hand corner staring at the painting).
I wanted to say how happy I am about the original kit your aritists created from an original photo of mine. It's just stunning. I knew when I opened the package I was in for a treat by all the wonderful colors of paint that would represent my photo. I'm not quite finished but I wanted to show you a comparison of the painting I'm working on from the kit and the original photo. Thanks again for all attention to detail. I can't wait to hang it in my "truck room." See photo below. If you can't tell, the photo is on top and the painting is below.
