A portrait's worth a thousand words.
Or at least, equal to any photograph. At Hang Designs,
Australian artists Shannon and Fiona create one of a kind paintings based on a favorite photo of your child.
You send in the photo(s), choose a background and foreground color, and the artists translate that picture into a painted portrait. There's a wide array of colors from which to choose, from hot pink to basic black and cream.
The price isn't too bad (although we're not sure what they charge for shipping overseas), ranging from $94 for an 8x10 print to $376 for a 36x48 canvas.
