Home Portraits and Note Cards

Order a home portrait in January 2017, and your order will include ten professionally printed and personalized notecards/envelopes.   These notecards are great for regular correspondence 
but also make nice "We've moved!" announcements.

30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS . . . AGAIN!

The new year looks to be full of new and interesting opportunities.  I have lots of exciting plans in the works - from trips to warm places, a watercolor/sketching workshop in a place I've never visited, garden plans for my own new home, and so much more!  Of course, all these things bring new opportunities to create art.  And an appropriate way to kick it all off is with Leslie Saeta's 30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS CHALLENGE.

Leslie always suggests choosing a theme for your 30 in 30 participation.  So I'm combining my love of flowers with my love of doing home portraits.

For the month of January, 
I'll be doing daily blog posts in a series entitled:

*** B L O O M S  &  B U I L D I N G S ***


All artwork for the 30 in 30 will be for sale in my Etsy shop the same day it is posted on the blog. 

So, sign up for daily blog updates with your email address right under my profile at the top of the sidebar.   ----------->

BELLA GOES TO CALIFORNIA and 26 UNDER $50


BELLA
12 x 12 oil on canvas  

 There's something about a new year that makes me want to have more spare surroundings.  So, I've been spending some time getting my art room all sorted out.  Pitching, paring down etc.   In doing this, I came across "Bella", a painting I did a couple years ago and had almost forgotten about.  Then I woke up this morning to the news that she's getting a new home in California!

This has inspired me to clean out the shop! Start fresh! 
Buy some fresh paints and brushes and get those new ideas on canvas!


So, starting today there are 26 items in my shop listed at 
under $50.00!  
Check them out HERE.
Look for the ***** after a listing name to 
find the new priced items and start fresh yourself 
with a new piece of art for your tired 2016 walls!

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED IS BELOW:

Your home is special to you. Fond family memories of holidays, special events, and growing a family are made here. Treat yourself to a lasting memory of your home or lake cottage with the commissioning of an original, hand-drawn pen and ink home portrait. Home portraits make great house warming gifts too!  

You supply the photos and email them to me in a digital file - iPhone or similar photos are fine - you don't need a fancy camera. Please send several views. Photos taken low to the ground (looking UP at the house) from the front corners of your lot or beyond, are usually the best and show off your house's greatest angles. Just make sure you are far enough away to catch every corner of your house and landscaping. Also, to catch those great line defining shadows on the house and lawn/snow, take your photo on a bright, sunny day. If you would like certain trees/landscaping added or left out, we can arrange for that too. This is for a house portrait only (no people or pets, no exceptions please). Do you want to add just a spot of color to your portrait? I'd be happy to paint your front door. Just mention that in the order notes. Please let me know if you need the drawing by a specific date. Otherwise, allow 10 days from the date when all photos/information have been submitted, for shipping of your portrait.  

This listing is for an 8 x 10 inch home portrait with a surrounding area of white measuring 11" x 14" (to fit a standard size 11" x 14" frame). It will be tucked into a clear cellophane protective sleeve so you can wrap a ribbon around it and give it as is, or frame it yourself.  

FINISHING TOUCH IS THE FRAMING OF YOUR HOME PORTRAIT. I suggest using a narrow black frame which looks clean and classic with a home portrait. The surrounding white area I leave around the portrait sets it off nicely.

A commissioned home portrait allows you to give a personalized gift for a favorite hostess, house warming, Christmas, lake cottage, or childhood home for a reasonable price. And you won't have to worry about giving a duplicate gift!

Wondering how to get your home photo to me??? Just stand outside your home, directly in front, and snap a photo with your smart phone or digital camera. When placing the order for your Tiny Home Portrait, there will be a space providing for sending me a message and including a photo. That's it!!

8 x 10 portrait is ON SALE for $72.00, from now until December 15th!

Note: frame not included 

I accept PayPal, credit cards, and Etsy Gift Cards.
