Heirloom Paintings Launch Party at Dodici’s Shop

Join us this Friday, March 16 from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Dodici’s Shop for the launch party of the year!

Help us kick start our new venture – Heirloom Paintings Business – transforming digital photographs into timeless heirloom paintings and receive a discount on your favorite beverage! Stop by the shop any time this week to sign into your Facebook account, “like” our page, and receive .50 cents off a drink of your choice (alcoholic beverages excluded).

Friday, March 16 3:00 to 8:00 p.m., enjoy a wine and beer tasting with complimentary appetizers and stick around for live music starting at 6:30 p.m. featuring battle of the bands first place winner “Manhattan Project.” This is a free show. Tips and donations are accepted and will help the group fund a CD recording of their music.

Heirloom Oil Paintings can turn any photo into a work of art!

Send us any digital photo, scanned picture from back in the day, or a combination of foreground and background in two separate pictures and we will have our artists convert it into a real painting! Whether you want a portrait of yourself, your friends, family or even pets, Heirloom Paintings transforms photos into paintings to be treasured for generations. Our authentic paintings are made to resemble classic old world oil paintings.

Now you can cherish forever those images that look so dull in normal digital photos. We can enhance the colors and contrasts, photoshop the defects you want to eliminate, and then have one of our artists make a beautiful painting out of the result!

Your old high school pictures, your son or daughter’s graduation, your wedding; basically any memorable moment caught on camera or simply any photo you love! Immortalize your favorite pet, make a milestone out of that forgotten best picture of you from your teens… Check out our family’s portraits hanging on Dodici’s Shop walls!

The possibilities are endless; you can combine any element with a different background, any face with a different body (imagine your face adapted to a portrait of Henry the 8th, or your daughter’s version of the Mona Lisa!) Our artists can convert your imagination into a timeless painting to frame and pass on to your heirs (hence the name).

The service will be competitively priced with fast delivery, perfect for unforgettable gifts, graduation or wedding presents, even for the friend who has everything.
