modern bird studios giveaway

Mandy and I recently had the pleasure of meeting a company named Modern Bird Studios. It is a modern art company that takes photographs and creates paintings from them. They take a picture and break it down into a two-color image, which results in abstract shapes that make up the form. They then use two colors (you get to pick from their color chart) to create the painting using a thick oak composite for the medium. Genius! We were each given a 12" x 12" painting of our little boys.



Aren't they fabulous? It was love at first sight when mine came in the mail. It is such a treasure! I also must add that Modern Bird Studios was an absolute pleasure to work with. Extremely professional, extremely friendly, and very patient (we each needed to see several color options before deciding for sure!).

The fabulous news for you is that one of our dear readers will receive their own 12"x 12" custom piece from Modern Bird Studios (a $215 value!). All you have to do is leave us a comment with what picture you would have made into a painting if you are the lucky winner. For extra entries, you can follow Modern Bird Studios on Twitter or Facebook. This giveaway is only open to readers in the lower 48 states and no previous winners are eligible to enter. The giveaway will end on Monday, September 6th at 11:59 pm PDT. For a limited you can also receive a special discount at Modern Bird Studios. If you use the code LITTLEBIRDIE you will get 15% off! It will expire one week after contest ends. Good luck!

i don't have any of their work, but found modern bird studios a while back and i just love their stuff. i would love to have a painting of our new little baby who is due in just over a month, so i don't have the actual picture yet, but i trust i'll have TONS of pictures to choose from pretty soon . . . you gotta have something a little special when you are #6, right?
thanks,
shana

I have a really sweet picture of my son on the gulf coast. It melts my heart every time I see it. I would LOVE that!! Thanks!

Marriah said...

My first thought would be a wedding portrait of myself and my husband - there's a fabulous photo of us on a hillside with him dipping me, mid-kiss. It by far our favorite! However, I also would also consider a portrait I took of a little boy while on a trip to Roatan, Honduras a few years ago. These are georgeous!

ksteinhilper said...

I love this. I would use a picture of my two boys!

Marriah said...

Heather said...

OMG, I LOVE this. What an awesome idea. If I won I would choose to do a picture of my 2 girls, probably this one of them looking at each other laughing and smiling. A moment I love and just happened to capture on camera. If not that one it would definitely focus on them or our fun industrial looking family photos we recently took.

Bonnie Michelle said...

I might do a photo from the birth of my daughter. We have some really nice ones. Or I might do one of my daughter when she turns 1, coming up in October!

Settee said...

These are amazing! I think it would have to either be a picture of our soon to be first baby or a picture of our very fuzzy sheepdog! I think the sheepdog would be lots of fun! we have a very cute black and white of her that just might work! :-)

bradendandbritt said...

Amelia said...

I love these! I saw a post about Modern Bird Studios somewhere else a few months ago and bookmarked it somewhere. My first thought was one of my daughter of course, but after reading the comments I think a wedding photo would be pretty awesome. But in the end I think I would probably choose one of my oldest dog who is nearing the end of her time with us, and it has been an amazing time.
