It’s A Keeper

A cool way to preserve special moments

Instagram is the new brag book. But we’ve still got a soft spot for old-school keepsakes. Jenny Grumbles agrees. The 32-year old artist (and owner of Uptown Country Home in Snider Plaza) paints youthful, impressionistic portraits with a mod vibe. Just email her a photo of, say, your toddler taking his first steps, and she’ll create an acrylic masterpiece in six weeks or less. Grumbles is a member of the Impressionist Society of America and is currently showing works in galleries from Newport Beach to Atlanta—so you’ll be getting a wall-worthy painting, for sure. Prices for made-to-order canvases start at $245 for an 8x10 portrait. And for what it’s worth, we like Beaudry for framing.
