At Easel with Some of “Many Photos”, Roughed in Start of Painting and Reproductions in Background.
Commissioning a House Portrait, How does it work?
Well, First we talk. You tell me Stories about your Family, History of your Home, likes and dislikes.
I take many Pictures and you supply some, too.
We sign my Contract and a 50% Down Payment is made.
I let the Images and Stories roll around in my mind for a month. Things start to gel.
I start Sketching. I prepare the Linen Canvas.
I Paint…. More things fall into place on the canvas.
At a minimum 2 months later I present you with the House Portrait. The final 50% is paid.
I will make some changes if you wish. The House Portrait is scanned by my Printer for my Portfolio.
You take your House Portrait to your Framer.
Notecards And Giclees ( Archival reproductions, on Art Paper or Canvas) can be ordered.
An Unveiling Party can be scheduled.
