Some of you know that I accept commissions for home or garden paintings. I have a partnership with the Exeter Historical Society in which I donate 15% of each Home & Garden Portrait commissioned. Since January, 2009 I have donated over $476 to them just from these commissions! Not all of the homes are in Exeter. Last year I completed a small portrait of a home in Connecticut. It was an anniversary gift to the owners from their children.
This is the most recent Home & Garden commission. The owners of this work gave it to each other as a wedding anniversary gift. Considered an heirloom for the family they are raising, it will hang above their new fireplace just in time for the 30th anniversary of their first date. It is the largest portrait I have completed so far, and the first of a Victorian home.
Consider this gift for yourself or for a loved one. Gift certificates are available. Check out the page on my website devoted to my Home & Garden Portraits. Click on the link provided to the left.
