Commissioned portraits need not be of people or pets. I was recently contacted by good friends to create a gift for neighbors who were moving away, a portrait of their cherished family home as they were preparing to move elsewhere. A portrait is a reminder of a what a moment in time looked like, but it is also a reminder of what that person or place means to the viewer. In this case it is capturing 20 years of warm family memories from holiday gatherings to skinned knees to bedtime stories, now a moment in time ready to be hung on the wall of their new home.
“We wanted to let you know that the owners of Ardmore were thrilled with their print!!! She was in tears when we gave it to her. 😊 She had always wanted to have one done. To say the least, it was greatly appreciated they loved the details on the planters and the pillow. After 20 years of memories, they will cherish it for a long time.”– Desty
Thank you to Desty and Connie for the commission!
