Custom Home Portrait, Can be Decorated for Christmas to use for Christmas Cards Gift Certificate

Sorry, this item has sold.

Custom Home Portrait painted in Watercolor & Ink, 11" x 14" size, by me, house portrait artist, Robin Zebley. This pretty house in Alaska features the sunrise and a doggy romping in the snow. I hear it's a fall scene, the snow gets much higher there!

If you'd like your home in a snowy, winter scene I can easily convert your summer photo to a winter one. Want to use it for your Christmas cards? I can provide a high dpi file for you at no extra cost. Turn around time is about 2 to 3 weeks except late fall. So please order early for Christmas cards! I work in the order I receive payments.

I feel like every home has a soul and I wanted my house portraits to have a lots of personality and a bit of whimsy! Since I also do woodblock prints, I realized I could create house portraits that show my love and influence of woodblock prints! So I had a lot of fun inking this heavily influenced by my woodblock printing background, and "hand coloring" it with quality watercolors. All materials are top of the line and acid free.

Outstanding gift idea for any occasion!

Since it's too late to order a painting for Christmas delivery, I'm again offering my very popular gift certificate, which I will email to you and you can present on Christmas, telling them their gift is "still on the easel". I know that's less than ideal, so I am offering 10% off for my gift cert portraits. Then, I will paint your portrait after the holidays. I paint in order that they are purchased, so order early for the fastest delivery!

When to Order For Christmas?

It is never to early! Every year I have to disappoint because I can't accept all of the orders of people who want a custom portrait in time for Christmas. Much better to order WAY in advance to guarantee delivery for Christmas gift giving.

I finished my last 2017 Christmas order on April 1, 2018. So, I highly recommend ordering in advance and putting it away than having to wait til spring!
