One of my favorite things to create is a commissioned house portrait. It’s the perfect way to display the unique charm and personality of your home and create a lasting memory for the future. I can also paint your school, church, or business if you prefer. A house portrait is an exquisite keepsake addition to your home’s decor that you can enjoy for years to come and it makes a thoughtful gift for friends and family, real estate closings, weddings, and housewarmings. It is perhaps the most personal art investment you can make.
I will provide you with an original pen and ink or watercolor portrait painted from your photos. Each portrait is professionally matted in an archival acid-free mat in your choice of three standard sizes ready for easy framing. (Frame is not included.) I will also include a free graphic formatted for Facebook and social media so you can share your portrait with your friends!
I’ve found that many people like to purchase additional products featuring their portrait, so I decided to offer my most popular combinations in packages to make ordering easy and cost-effective. Note cards, giclée prints, and digital files may be purchased along with the original portrait in one of my house portrait packages.
Shipping is free on these additional items if purchased with your original portrait. If items are purchased separately or at a later date, additional shipping charges are applied. You can always order additional items in the future, but if you purchase them together you’ll save quite a bit on shipping!
Note cards are printed on premium quality 80 lb. acid-free cover stock, with a slightly textured matte finish. Cards are A2 sized (4.25″ x 5.5″) with white envelopes included. If you would like the ability to print your own note cards, stationery, additional prints, etc. please purchase the high resolution digital files. You will receive 300 dpi JPG, TIF, and PDF files that you are free to use and print as many times as you would like.
Signed giclée prints are fine art reproductions of your original painting. They make thoughtful gifts for family members or grown children who have moved away from home. At the office, a print can serve as a warm reminder of your vacation house, and makes a terrific conversation piece. Prints also include an acid free mat. (Frame is not included.) Giclée prints are professionally printed on thick, high-quality archival art paper with a textured finish.
Gift certificates are also available, and are a great option if you need a gift right now and don’t have time to wait for an original portrait to be completed, or if you don’t have photos of the home. Certificates are decoratively wrapped and ready for gift-giving.
To get started on your own house portrait, please contact me to discuss your needs and go over any questions you may have. Also be sure to get my tips for taking great photos of your home to ensure the perfect portrait!
Portraits and prints are carefully shipped in a protective art-safe box via USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground. Insurance and a tracking number are included. If you would like expedited shipping, just let me know. Please allow between 4-6 weeks for completion.
I want you to be happy with your portrait. My personal promise to you is that I will do my utmost to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the quality, price, and delivery of your items. I look forward to working with you!
