This giveaway is closed. In addition to one 12×12-inch custom piece from Modern Bird Studios, Megan and Gregg have offered to give a second winner a 50% off gift certificate. The randomly selected numbers were 25 and 4, so the winner of the 12×12 piece of personalized artwork is Hillcrest Cottage. And should she wish to accept, the 50% off coupon goes to courtney. Congrats, ladies, and thank you Megan and Gregg for providing this giveaway.
In this challenging economic climate, it seems that there’s no end to the creative and innovative ways people are keeping food on the table. Case in point: Modern Bird Studios.
Modern Bird Studios is a small family business run by Gregg Deal and his wife Megan, inspired by Gregg’s interest in urban art and his desire to use his talent to provide for his family. He combines technology and painting to turn personal photographs into pieces of hip modern art. Seriously, you’ve got to check it out.
Megan contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I’d be interested in receiving a piece of their artwork and offered to provide a giveaway for my readers as well as a discount code. I’m pretty choosy about the reviews and giveaways I accept these days, especially the ones that I put here on Musings of a Housewife, but as soon as I saw their site, I knew I had to tell y’all about it.
The process was a piece of cake, and Megan was delightful to deal with. I knew immediately which picture I wanted to use.
I got to choose two colors from this color chart. I was tempted by the tan and white, but I knew I wanted to hang it on the rust-red walls of my office and I thought the black and white would be the perfect contrast, so that was my final answer. The very next day Megan sent an image proof for my approval. It looked great, so she said Gregg was going to get to work painting it. He painted it on a 12×24 block of wood. In their FAQ section, you can see a description of the process and an explanation of why he uses wood vs. canvas. A few days later Megan contacted me to say that my painting was going in the mail, and it arrived on my doorstep the next day. Even she was surprised at how fast it came. I unwrapped it to find this:
I KNOW! That’s my view whenever I look up from my computer. What a treasure!
I guess you know what’s coming next…
