I have been writing product reviews and giveaways for almost two years now and this review is my absolute favorite! Modern Bird Studios takes your favorite photograph and somehow captures the image perfectly into a painting. Gregg Deal is the Creative Director for Modern Bird Studios. Gregg studied art in college and wanted to find a way to share his God given talent and make a living for his family. He decided to create art pieces that utilize technology and painting. Gregg combines his original urban-style with photography, graphic design and traditional painting to create handmade, original art pieces. Gregg’s wife Megan, who is an absolute doll and a riot, handles the marketing side of Modern Bird Studios.
HOW IT WORKS
- Pick you favorite photo and e-mail them a jpeg or gif
- Pick the two colors for the painting.
- Approve it before they send it, and tada…. a few days later your painting will arrive
I chose to send them one of my favorite photographs of my two youngest boys in a spontaneous moment. I don’t have the best camera, but I love this picture of them kissing, plus I don’t like posed pictures. Below is the picture I sent (aren’t they precious!)

I e-mailed them the picture, picked the two colors (Java Brown and Urban Beige) I wanted, and they got back to me right away. Megan told me that Gregg was concerned because of the flash that was used, but because he is such a talented genius, Gregg captured the expressions perfectly! The painting is just beautiful and I love the colors. I am thrilled and will treasure this painting forever! I know this is a review, but I would happily pay the cost, and speaking of the cost, their prices are very reasonable for the quality and the service. Here is the finished painting!

ABOUT THE PROCESS
Each piece requires a tremendous amount of attention, detail, and time to create. We take a photograph, and break it down into a two-color image, which results in abstract shapes that make up the form. We then choose two contrasting colors to create the painting. We use a thick Oak composite for our medium. Oak wood composite that has little to no chance of a true warp. Also, wood is smooth and has a much finer line to it. You can read more about how the paintings are made on their website FAQ page. Below are more pictures of our painting showing the back, width, and where we will hang it (when I can get my hubby to do it!)
Have a look at the other wonderful paintings in the gallery page at their website www.modernbirdstudios.com They also sell a line of pre-designed paintings. You can contact them on the website, Twitter, or Facebook to order your own painting. Go on, you know you want one! Bonus: They are offering a 15% discount starting today thru March 20th!
