A different take on house portrait gifting this holiday season
With the world looking different and uncertain, the holiday season and family gatherings will be even more important this year. I know with the magic of holidays also comes the stress.
In order to ease your present buying, I wanted to share with you a couple of different ways to gift my classic house portraits that you might not have considered. Let me know which one is your favorite!
Wedding Bells - celebrate their special day and commission a portrait of a chapel or wedding venue, this could be the one gift that they didn’t even know they wanted on their registry. Add it to a platter or ornament and add a special gift message so the love birds can think fondly of you years later.
School Ties - with graduations looking different these days, celebrating the new grad is even more important. I’ll illustrate a building from campus for a keepsake that commemorates their accomplishment and reminds them of their days on the quad.
Department of the Interior - house portraits aren’t always featuring the exterior, I can also illustrate a room inside the house. This is a great way to keep those special spaces with you even after you change your decor - this would be a great way to remember the sweet decor of a nursery when kids graduate to a “big kids” room.
Backyard Oasis - maybe your favorite place isn’t inside your home, but behind it. Let me illustrate your pied de terre and all of the things that you love about it.
Wild Card - Is your father-in-law or dad an avid golfer? Let me illustrate his favorite part of the golf course. Angler? Let me create a painting of his favorite part of the river. Or, in my case, for my husband’s birthday this year, I illustrated a fountain that is in our favorite park. When we were dating and wanted to meet up for a walk, we’d always “meet at the fountain”. Need some help brainstorming? Let me know!

P.S. I almost forgot one of my favorite commissions, a Nantucket fudge shop, where my client met her husband years ago at their first summer job.
