Historic Centuries-Old Style Called Triptych Reborn with Prints On Canvas

Triptych is a work of art that is similar to panel paintings, three to be exact, which is why it’s divided into three sections. The three even hand crafted panels that are hinged together and can be arranged in different ways freestanding. It is therefore a type of “polyptych”, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is generally the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, however today there are many triptychs that use equal-sized panels like the ones on our website. The multi-panel form arises from early Christian art, and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. Its geographical range was from the eastern Byzantine churches to the Celtic churches in the west. Today, however, triptychs are a popular interior design go-to element to make any space look special.

Modern Photographic Triptych Printed On Canvas At MakeCanvasPrints

A photographic triptych is a common style used in modern commercial artwork. The photographs are usually arranged with a plain border between them. The work may consist of separate images that are variants on a theme, or may be one continuous larger image split into three panels. Just about any landscape photos look great, or any photo with a wide format. Then again, you could always turn our template sideways in our customizer, and make the image span 3 panels vertically instead. The arrangement could also be staggered at a diagonal for a more playful design.

Picture Perfect Photo Canvas

With all of the new picture taking technology that has been popular this year from the updated iPhone cameras to the new Go Pro to the drones, our personal picture collections are stuffed with memories. But if you really think about it, there are probably a couple pictures that you can pick out of a selection that really capture a special day or event. That one special photo that sums up all the great memories is the one that would definitely look the best as a photo canvas.

Simple and Sleek

A great thing about a photo canvas is that you don’t have to frame the canvas. They are well made, as the canvas is stretched onto a wooden frame. This gives the image some dimensions and defines the image that is hanging on the wall or sitting on a desk. The look is very simple and sleek, which gives it a modern look. This makes it an easy piece to add to any home or office.

Memories and Moments

Capturing a special moment or photograph of someone is easy nowadays with the technology we have available literally right at the end of our own fingertips. Before, creating a photograph was a tedious task of carrying a large camera, hoping that the perfect moment was captured, and then developing the picture before we got to see exactly what was even captured. Back then, photos really came to life through a camera. Nowadays, they often stay as a digital file saved in our computers and phones. Making a photo canvas print is a modern way to bring your pictures to life so that you can share with friends and family… beyond your phone or Facebook!

Love is… Gift Ideas

Do you remember reading the comics of the cute naked couple, by the artist Kim Casali ? Each comic would say “love is…” and then have a short saying such as, “reading each other as a book.” This concept can make for great gift ideas. With a photograph of a couple, you can create your own version of what love is. The example above is one that I made for my cousin’s bachelorette party gift. Definitely being  one of my better gift ideas, there was a lot of positive reaction from everyone. My aunt and grandma liked it so much that they wanted me to get one for them also. My grandma said it would also make a great post wedding gift with photos of the bride and groom.

I have a cousin that went from a college drop out to a business owner that was featured on Forbes magazine. Just a few years back, I remember him being the kid that gets ready to go to out by rolling out of bed in his gym shorts, throwing on a wrinkled t-shirt, and stepping into the nearest flip flops. Now he is a business owner of Big Fish Presentations, a successful marketing production company that has had so much growth within the past few years. So I observed his new lifestyle and I saw clues on how he kept himself motivated. Around his apartment were Post-it notes everywhere reminding him of his goals, accomplishments, and inspirational quotes.

Inspirational Quotes and Motivation

Sometimes it can be hard to get motivated merely by the light shining through the window on your to-do list. Motivation fueled by having a list of goals is sometimes just not enough. Researchers did studies and they found out that the most potent source of motivation comes from emotions. But of course, you probably didn’t need a scientist to tell you that. This is because emotions come from passion, and that is a genuine source of motivation. So listen to your gut feeling, and through that, you will know what is right for you. Then motivation will follow. It always helps to come across pick me ups in forms of inspirational quotes. A photo or an inspirational quote on the wall can be a simple reminder of what fuels you.

Designing a Custom Inspirational Quote Canvas

Remember those inspirational posters that you would find in a doctor’s office with a photo a guy climbing a mountain and bold white letters spelling out “Success!”?

Personalize Your Baby Photos on Canvas

When a new born baby arrives in the home, you can expect a lot of things to change. I hear that you get less sleep and life starts revolving around your new little roommate. It may be a roller coaster that takes you for a quick ride, so remember to cherish each moment. My father knew this and when my sister and I were born, his video camera and photo camera became extensions of his arms. In my parent’s house, you can find a collection of VHS tapes that are filled with baby footage along with a thick album collection of baby photos. Film photos and videos were the classic ways to document the memories of babyhood in the 80s. Now you can create modern custom canvas prints as a new creative way to express your baby photos!

Inspiration for Baby Photos

I stumbled across some baby photos that really stand out. Sioin Queenie Liao is a freelance artist that is inspired by taking photographs of her baby boys. She creates home made props to put together scenes and uses her baby photos to illustrate a dreamy fairy tale. She uses regular household items such as toys and plain clothes to create these scenes. Her expression of love is really inspiring and I really recommend checking out her website at the following link: http://wengenninwonderland.com/

So this is to all the mothers out there

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed but the mother never. A mother is something absolutely lovely.” -Kim Storozhuk

A Perfect Anniversary Gift

So I haven’t been married for very long. It’s been about half a year since my husband and I said our I Do’s. Some say that lasting marriages are becoming a rarity over the years, like the giant panda, but I have seen evidence in my life that has proved otherwise. My parents and my husband’s parents have been together in a loving marriage for more than 28 years. Although my grandparents are from another time, they have been together for more than 60 years. And they still hold hands and tell each other “I love you.” I remember from a few years ago, even at their ripened age, my grandpa wrote my grandmother a poem and gave her a rose as an anniversary gift. Perhaps showing genuine appreciation is the key to maintaining a caring relationship.

Weed Killer aka Anniversary Gift

In this fast pace modern lifestyle, we might take each other for granted at times and forget to show appreciation. When we are consumed in the everyday grind, maybe we forget to stop for a second and really show the special people in our lives how much we appreciate them. Anniversaries, whether it be a wedding, business anniversaries, or cultural milestones, I believe that it is important to take time to celebrate these occasions. Living a married life, you can sometimes expect the other person to always be there and love you no matter what, and complacency is a dangerous weed that can grow in the corner of the house. So put on some gardening gloves and pull that weed out with a perfect anniversary gift. Like a garden, relationships take some work to maintain and that’s okay!

A Thoughtful Anniversary Gift

Gift giving is a ritual that has been here since the beginning and is a gesture that is an expression of your appreciation of another. Even penguins are known to give each other gifts. When a male penguin finds a special mate, he will hunt the beach for the perfect pebble to give to his love. If the female penguin accepts the gift, they are together for life. Taking some time to write a poem or create a piece of art is the same type of gesture that can make the perfect anniversary gift. With our canvas customizer, you can turn your poem, artwork, or photograph into canvas wall art. Taking the time and designing the perfect canvas is just as thoughtful as picking out the perfect pebble.

Much Love and Thanks!
