I have seen some of the pictures that they put on Canvas.
My best advice to you is to insure that you have a very good quality of picture. When they enlarge it, it will show any flaws.
Most of the companies use cheap canvas. Check with them to insure is it acid free canvas, if it’s not it will degrade faster over time.

I really guess I don’t understand your question on if it is a sin to draw a portraits :confused: To the best of my knowledge it isn’t. Morally it is no different that taking a photo. I don’t want to sound krast, why would you think it is??


Good gravy, it’s not a sin!!! Think about all those portaits of popes and even some saints (when affordable and not a model).

Are you by chance related in some fashion to the Amish, who consider photography sinful?


Do the Amish consider photography sinful? I know my DH grandparents are German Baptist (modern Amish, well kind of) and grandma paints portaits all the time!


thanks a lot you people clear me…


The old order Amish consider photography to be a sin against pride at best, and making of graven images at worst.

Doesn’t Pictures on Canvas require photography first?
