I had my first real taste of painting historic houses as part of my West Chicago / Meeting Place series. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a few commission paintings. These homeowners contacted me and asked me to create a portrait of their homes. This is the first commission that has been finished, framed, and delivered! This historic bungalow is nearly 100 years old and has sheltered four generations under its roof. Part of the fun for me is learning the story of the house itself. If you’re interested in finding out more about commissioning a house portrait, please contact me.
