A Gift from the Heart

Here is one of the commissions that I have been working on. My client commissioned two of the same house. She grew up in this house and now lives in it with her husband and children. One of the paintings is for her, the other she is going to give to her parents for Christmas. Many of my clients have given a painting of their home or vacation home to their spouse for an anniversary gift, Father's Day or birthday. I love hearing the stories of how happy and surprised the recipient was.

  4. You made such a good job of it, Liana! I had two assignments for houses from people who have moved away and wanted to remember their places!

  8. I'm glad you keep the paintings looking like paintings, and not too architectural. They maintain the status of homes in your hand. Very wonderful.

  9. Thank you for your sweet comments! Anthony, thanks for noticing that they are paintings and not architectural renderings. I keep thinking I am going to get more painterly with them, but, so far, I am still tight by nature.
