As a mother, there is nothing I love more than pictures or art that serve as a reflection of my children. I think almost any mother would agree. Today I was browsing the new and improved Kirtsy site (previously sk*rt) and I happened upon this lovely piece of art.

The woman behind paperbean design started with this picture, that like she says on her blog, is not a bad picture.

But then she worked her magic and turned this seemingly ordinary picture... into this!

and suddenly it is no longer "not a bad picture" but rather this brilliant piece of art, that is a reflection of the child that you love so much. This is one piece of artwork I'd gladly display just about anywhere, and lucky for her admirers (me included) she'll make you one of your own custom silhouettes, now to find the perfect picture...

email for details.
