I’ve always loved a good commissioned portrait— and I am enjoying this new foray into a different version— antique home portraits!
This house portrait is of the sweet “Wells Farmhouse”, nestled in historic Setauket, Long Island. This beautiful cape was recently purchased by Erin at Bygone Living and I am thrilled to think that my painting will now be hanging above this beautiful antique home’s mantle.
I am working on my ‘architectural’ skills these days— and the old homes are always my favorite!
This portrait has many special details requested by the owner— a blooming lilac, budding crabapple, a little black cat and a ship model in the window. In the background there is also a small footbridge with weeping willows and deer.
I’d love to do more custom antique home portrait work, especially after I get the holiday seasons finished with. Come January, I will be ready to curl up with lots of special projects, and it will be here before we know it….I’m already painting Christmas art!
I’m getting a new custom work page created, so I’ll be able to prices and options to show you all very soon.
