I've been thinking a lot lately about the printed portrait.
We live in a digital age and have become very accustomed to seeing our loved ones presented over the screen.
These memories are precious in their own right. They capture a moment in time that can never return. However, there is something fleeting about the digital image as well. As technology changes, we scroll on, and the moment is forgotten.
This is where printed artwork comes in. It is timeless. When we adorn our walls, bookshelves, and desks with printed portraits we have a constant reminder of how fleeting time is, and how much we need to hang on to and love those around us.
I love visiting my Grandma's home. All over her home she has portraits of my Mom and my aunts, uncles, and cousins from various stages of their lives. I love looking at the portraits of my Grandpa and remembering the great times we had. The home is filled with memories, only some of which are immortalized on the walls.
There really is no way to convey the beauty and power of print via digital media.
This canvas brings this portrait to life.
