I work from photographs, either yours or mine. If the house you want me to paint is nearby, I will photograph it myself. If not, the project will be a collaboration. You provide photographs of your house, both the view you want in the portrait and close-ups that focus on architectural details. You may email me digital images or send me photos via USPS. Once I see a few shots, I can ask you to send more specific views if I need them. Think about what time of day and which season you feel your house looks its best. Tell me what size you want the finished portrait to be, and I'll take it from there. If there is an element of special significance you want me to be sure to feature, just say so. Don't be shy about communicating what is special to you about the home. It helps me to know your story. Utility poles and wires, parked cars, and anything that detracts from the overall composition will be omitted unless you want them included.
Please contact me so we can begin creating a House Proud Portrait for yourself or as a gift for somebody else. I am happy to answer all your questions and there is no obligation to buy. Questions? Please call or email me. I look forward to hearing from you.
