A Grammy Mouse House Portrait – The Perfect Gift for any Occasion
In my other life (from blogging) I am a folk artist. My work is contained in folk art collections all over the world, has been published as limited edition prints, greeting cards and licensed for use in the home décor industry. Over the years I have done a number of personalized “home portraits” for clients. I refer to the as home portraits rather than the more conventional term “House portraits” because they are more than the typical architectural rendering of a house. Collecting as many details and wishes from the client as I can, I strive to have these paintings have real personal meaning for the recipient so I pay close attention to all the specialized requests a client has such as the inclusion of children, pets, a favorite rose bush or birdhouse…..whatever it takes to make the painting special and let it tell a family story. For me no detail is to small and no request too strange.
The house portrait paintings are done in my folksy Americana style. It’s fun to add details like children, pets, favorite cars, motorcycles …whatever will make the painting special and meaningful for you. These paintings make the ultimate gift – perfect for the person who has everything. They are a wonderful surprise for retired parents that are downsizing and selling the family homestead. It’s a chance for them to preserve all those cherished memories and create a family heirloom that an be passed through the generations. It’s the perfect Christmas, anniversary, birthday, and Mother’s Day present.
The process is easy. Photos can be emailed to me and we keep in touch during the painting process by email so you can give me your input and I can ask you questions. If this is a gift, I provide you with a color gift certificate (by email) that you print out and wrap up and give to the recipient. This allows the recipient to be able to share in the creative process and receive the exact rendering of their home they want.
