I've thought about doing one myself. The canvas and paints, etc are available from my local garden centre or art shop! Should work out cheap and be personalised!

You could even do something like this, available on Ebay:

Hi,

I have two Gustav Klimt style/copies in oil.

One is a swirly colourful tree with a black bird perched on one of the branches.

The other is of a couple hugging, again very colourful.

They are proffesionally painted, and look quite modern and abstract, but intricate and not obscure.

Largish too 36" x 24" (3ft x 2ft)

As new, never been mounted or displayed, so no dust.

I bought them about a year ago but have'nt had a chance to get them mounted, so still rolled up in the box they came in and still have that fresh oil smell, but I'm going to get them mounted now as I need to get rid of them.


Let me know if you would like pics
