Custom House Portrait: A Unique Gift

My first custom house portrait was ordered by a friend, and after finishing it, I found myself wanting to do more.  They are so different than the animal portraits I normally do, and I find them fun and challenging.

It also occurred to me to contact my local realtors, as I think a house portrait makes a great gift for a new homeowner, AND a great gift for someone who is downsizing and moving out of a house they have lived in for many years.

As with my animal portraits, the key to a successful house portrait is a good picture which shows the owner's favorite features of the house, is taken on a sunny day, and is large and crisp enough to show the details of the house.  This is especially true here in the South where many houses have porches.

House Portrait Examples

The paintings below were all done in a larger 11" x 15" or 12" x 16" size to be able to establish the details well.  I  can do smaller paintings for houses which have a more simple exterior.
