1. An 8 x 10 watercolor and gouache portrait of your home. The portrait is painted on my favorite 140 lb Arches hot press paper which is archival, mould-made in France, and guaranteed to last over a lifetime.
2. Custom lettering if you'd like it. I have had folks request their last name, the names of all their family members, the home address, or a quote that is meaningful to the family
3. Up to two pets.
A couple of FAQ's about the portraits:
Q: Do you work from photos, and how many do you need?
A: Yes! I really only need one if it's a good quality, straight-on shot (like from the street). Some folks like to send additional shots of details they would like included (like light fixtures, for example. Or pets!).
After you purchase, I will send you an email requesting the photos.
Q: Can you include yard elements, like trees or mailboxes?
A: Absolutely! I love including things that "frame" your house. Include those in the photos that you send.
Q: Would you consider doing the portrait in a larger or smaller size?
A: This particular listing is for an 8x10 only. If you would like to strike up a conversation about a larger project, feel free to fill out the form in the "contact us" section of our website, located at the top of the page.
Q: What is the turnaround time for these?
A: I try my best to get these turned around in 2-3 weeks. If for some reason you are up against a deadline (birthday/anniversary/celebration), if you will email me before you purchase at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will see what I can do to expedite.
Q: What if I am buying this as a gift for someone? Can I have a gift certificate to send them?
A: Certainly! Just let me know that in the "Order Comments" form during checkout, and I will mail you a signed and numbered gift certificate, which the recipient can redeem at any time.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. I can't wait to work with you!
