For a mother who has been separated from her son or daughter, a custom created gift from their loved one is an extra special way of saying Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is a special day and Canvas On Demand ( -- the country’s leading provider of photo on canvas reproductions -- wants to make it even more special this year for 500 mothers who have a son or daughter in the U.S. military deployed overseas. A photograph turned into a beautiful piece of framed artwork – a photo to painting gift, compliments of Canvas On Demand.

As a way to honor the thousands of military personnel and thank them for their endless devotion and civic duty, Canvas On Demand will create - for free - a customized fine art photo to canvas painting and send it to military mothers just in time for Mother’s Day.

Canvas On Demand is renowned for making paintings from photos and photo enlargements with their trademarked PixelPainting™ technique included of any color or black and white photograph. The special Mother’s Day offer is a 16” x 20” canvas beautifully gallery wrapped and valued at $112.00. Canvas on Demand will ship the artwork – also free of charge - to the recipient with a note from their son or daughter.

This special photo canvas give-away promotion titled Operation: Hi Mom is the company’s unique way of showing support for the military and their mothers who are separated from their loved ones.

“We need to show our love, support and appreciation for the U.S. military and Operation: Hi Mom is our way of doing this. This year, we are inviting men and women in any branch of the military to send in a photo – black and white or color - and our talented team will create a one-of-a-kind picture to painting artwork for their mothers to enjoy, all at no charge,” comments Joe Schmidt, owner and co-founder of Canvas on Demand. “For a mother who has been separated from her son or daughter, a custom created gift from their loved one is an extra special way of saying Happy Mother’s Day!”

Canvas On Demand is excited about offering this promotion to military deployed overseas and helping them celebrate Mother’s Day. They are expecting hundreds to participate. As Schmidt adds, “Imagine how wonderful a mother will feel when she opens a package from her son or daughter and there is a personalized canvas printed from a favorite photo with the look and elegance of a traditional custom painting. It’s an opportunity to give a military mother a touching keepsake -- a personalized piece of canvas photo artwork -- that can be hung in a special place and cherished for years.”

How does Operation: Hi Mom Work?
Anyone deployed in the military can receive this free offer from Canvas On Demand, valued at $112 including shipping costs. The process is simple. All they have to do is to log onto and click on the specially-designed section titled Operation: Hi Mom, submit a request, upload a photo, and write a heartfelt message to their Mom. The canvas will be sent on or before Mother’s Day on May 10, 2009. All submissions and photos will be posted on and can easily be forwarded by email to friends and family. The deadline for submission is April 15, 2009.

Canvas On Demand is also asking all Americans to spread the good news. If you know of anyone currently serving overseas in the U.S. Military, direct them to Operation: Hi Mom. By connecting with one another, Canvas On Demand’s hope is to make this Mother’s Day even more memorable for hundreds of military mothers.
