Ireland House Portrait

"Ireland House Portrait"
10" x 20"
Oil on wrapped canvas
One of my house portraits led to a commission to paint a home in Ireland. I was given two gloomy photos of the place and urged to, "Make it look beautiful." During the interview I got permission to change the time of day, step inside the fenced field, and add sheep. I'm tickled with the outcome, and so, too are my clients.  It's a gift to the homeowner. A thank you for letting them stay in their home, this home, in Ireland.  

House portraits are a loving gift. I do quite a few of them for the agents where I work as a receptionist in a large real estate office on the north shore of Chicago.
