After my first Paintstagram attempt, I decided to try again for my boss and friend, Dave Woodruff. His birthday was last month, and after weeks of procrastination, I finally finished his Paintstagram. It’s a 6″ x 6″ of an Instagram he took on the New York subway.
And, here’s the Instagram Dave took of the painting of the Instagram. Inceptiongram, as some people say.
Instagram is huge right now. My sister-in-law, Vanessa has been chronicling baby Henry’s life with the app and the pictures are awesome. For her birthday this year, I decided to try out ImageSnap. They take your Instagram (or any) photos and print them on ceramic tiles. The teeny tiles are 2″ by 2″ and are the perfect size for fridge magnets. They turned out really great and I’ll definitely be ordering more real soon.

With my efforts to paint more frequently and at smaller scale, I came up with the idea to make painted versions of people’s Instagram photos. We are capturing more and more with this fun little app, and the square format and recognizable filters make for equally fun little paintings. For my friend Kate’s birthday, I decided to to paint her a 6″ x 6″ of her Instagram pic of her family’s farm. I think it turned out pretty neat and I can’t wait to paint more of them!
As if CanvasPop wasn’t cool enough, now they’re offering your Instagram photos printed on canvas for a surprisingly affordable price. Instagram turns your ordinary photos into fun, filtered pieces and now you can turn them into one-of-a-kind art for your home. I just ordered a few of my Instagram photos and I can’t wait to see how they turn out!
