my cousin came to me and told me how she has seen ultrasounds taken and turned into artwork. she asked if she could commission that as a present for a baby shower. i thought it would be a cool and unique idea to have the actual ultrasound printed on canvas and to paint on top of that, which i didn't know it that would work, but i did some mini tests (to be posted). fortunately everything worked perfectly. she basically wanted just a pretty, pure, and classic border around the edges. it's a girl! but no pinks! i think the outcome is pretty neat and the ultrasound on the canvas looked awesome, even pre-paint. after doing this project, i have a million ideas of painting around photographs, something i've actually been wanting to do for a while. painting the border was fun, but there are endless possibilites of what i could and want to do with this concept. fun!!
