Happy Shopping

This item is beyond perfect. I requested a painting in the Day of the Dead style for my boyfriends Friday the 13th Birthday. The artist sent me progression photos, asked what sort of sentimental ideas she could incorporate into the painting, and made sure to get the painting finished and shipped in enough time for him to open it for his birthday. I am insanely impressed with the detail - it is stunning. This was worth every penny, and I am beyond happy to have this item on my wall.

Wonderful to deal with. Very personalized product! This will make a wonderful wedding gift. Thanks so much!!!
