Custom House Illustration, Home Portrait Painting, Watercolor and Ink, 11" x 14", Home Illustration, House Portrait , Realtor Gift Idea Art


Custom House Portrait or Wedding Venue Portrait in Watercolor and Ink by me, artist Robin Zebley. I specialize in taking your photos and turning them into a work of art in my signature style, just a bit of whimsy and a LOT of pizzazz!

I have won local awards, been featured on Philadelphia t.v., have my work in a permanent university collection, but my favorite honor is being chosen to create a custom painting for you or as an unforgettable gift! I promise you, yours will be the one they show off first!

How to order: Simply attach your photo(s) to an etsy email to me, purchase this listing, and you are automatically next in my queue. I'll contact you to discuss and if you have things you want to add (pets, flowers, etc) or remove (power lines, cars, trash cans), we'll do it!

OR, just contact me and discuss. Other sizes available! More samples and sizes here at
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 too 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!

Can I cancel an order?

If you need to cancel after ordering, I will refund the price minus my time up to the time of your cancellation.

Do you paint people? Or people with pets?

Yes, I do!

Can you combine different photos?

Yes, I specialize in composing portraits using the best components of various photos!

Do you paint really large paintings, like 3 feet by 4 feet?

Yes, I have and I love painting them! Contact me for estimates for focal point paintings.

Can you paint anything from a photo?

Yes, as long as you own the copyright to the photo or it's in the public domain. Vacation, scenic, buildings, etc. I can even use your room colors!

I purchased two custom portraits of our parents' homes (our childhood homes) as a thank you gift for them at the time of our wedding. Robin did an amazing job - the colors and details are just perfect. This is a wonderful purchase/gift because of the quality, but it's originality is what makes it even more spectacular!

I am so happy with the painting of our home! We are moving from Philly to Chicago and this will be a lovely keepsake to remind us of how much we enjoyed our neighborhood.
