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…
WIN IT! One lucky winner will receive a 12×12-inch painting from Modern Bird Studios. That’s a $215 value. You will supply them with the photo of your choice and the two colors you would like the piece created in. To be eligible to win, there are a couple things you need to do:

I feel like I *need* Modern Bird art. Seriously… it would match J’s nursery exactly. Plus, they just do fabulous things with a canvas.
I’d love to do a 12×12 or 24×24 in orange and gray. Amazing work.

I love that you are able to choose from so many colors in order to create a piece of art that complements any room in your home!
Their artwork is so beautiful and unique. I love it! I’m already working on my DH to get me one for mother’s day/birthday/Christmas/any appropriate holiday!
Wow! I’m going to have to go with the pic of your kids- which is on their website! Love it!!
Always amazing!!!! I already know what picture I would use. Black and white for sure!
Oh, I’m TOTALLY in love with Modern Bird Studios! I am following them on fb and twitter! I would absolutely love to win one of their paintings. What a cherished family heirloom it would be!
Thanks for introducing us to them! I like their “surprise me” feature for when you feel overwhelmed by their color choices. If I described what room I wanted my piece to go in, I would totally trust them to make a great choice. How cool!
I love, love, love the work of Modern Bird! So contemporary, but elegant! Oh how I’d love to win one of my 3 boys. My husband would love it!

I love the fact that you can choose surprise me because there are so many colors to choose from I’m not sure if I’d be able to pick. This is such a cool idea. I really hope I win, but if not I just might have to try and save up some money to buy one 🙂
Hi, I’m following you on twitter and I’m now a fan on facebook. I think these are fabulous ! I like the idea of displaying a picture of my kids and a beautiful piece of artwork at the same time. I think I would have a hard time deciding what picture to use, but I’m sure I could figure it out ! This is something that would look awesome in the living room for everyone to see.
this stuff is very cool! i love that they are available horizontally and vertically also. what an original way to display your precious family photos!
My son and I have bought a new place (we move in the Spring) and I’m a big art freak. I love how Modern Bird Studios’ work turns what can be an everyday picture into a work of art. I think a piece would look great on our new living room wall.

I love the fact that my photograph can be transformed into a modern piece of art…like I am a part of the artistic creation…especially since I am not artistic at all!
I just discovered Modern Bird on Twitter this week, and just love their artwork! I think a 12×12 would look amazing in my baby’s modern yellow, white, black & grey nursery!
