It looks great but could you make it a little bigger?

I bought a print of a painting I love in the only format available: A full bleed art show poster on glossy 11"x17" bond. The painting reproduction is approximately the top half of the poster, say 10"x8". I can clearly see the grain of the canvas in the print, and it is entirely possible that the original painting is not much larger than the reprint. So my question is, is it feasible to have this print blown up to twice or thrice it's size without sacrificing quality?

I'd like to mount a big version of the print/painting and hang it on my wall*. Would that be possible to do with such a small representation?
And if it is indeed possible, could you recommend a place in Los Angeles (preferably somewhere between Beverly Hills and Downtown) that would do the whole shebang for me? I have a suitable frame, but would need the image blown up, matted, and then mounted in the frame.
*I'd like to keep the (signed, precious) poster print in its tube for now.
