▶ Purchase this listing.
Please add any personalization or special details you would like added/removed.

▶ Send me a high resolution, good quality photograph of the home as you would like it painted.
Send me a message on Etsy OR email me directly at kate [!at]

** If sending multiple reference photos, please be specific as to which photo you prefer - if a preference is not noted, I will use my discretion.
** Because I draw what I see, I need to be able to see the entire structure of the home or building. I can use photos from Googlemaps, other photographs or Zillow, however if the whole structure of the home is not visible (or at an angle you do not prefer), I will not be able to complete the painting **

▶ Once I receive your photos, I’ll respond within 1-2 business days confirming I received the photos along with the estimated date your painting will be completed. As I’m finishing up your painting, I’ll also send you a photo of the piece so we can make sure all details are captured accurately.

* If I do not receive a response within 1 week of sending a proof, your painting will be shipped to avoid delays

* This is an artistic interpretation of the home, not an exact rendition. These are all hand-painted by the artist, Kate Schumacher.

Absolutely beautiful finished paintings!!!! I am so happy I chose Kate to do both of my previous homes. She had to find the houses on the internet because I didn't have photos, she made the few changes needed to make the houses the way they were and kept checking with me to make sure everything was perfect before they were finalized. She cared that my homes reflected everything I wanted. Just perfection!!!

Absolutely love the finished product. Because of the landscape of the home, I only had a fisheye picture to capture the household. I asked if there was a way for her to un-fisheye the painting, and she totally nailed it! I know this’ll be a painting my family enjoys for years and years because it perfectly capture the lake house.

You can see all the right details and it is the best representation of our home. We are sad to move but this is the perfect perfect perfect thing to take with us! We are military so we move ALL THE TIME and we intend to order from here for every home we own!

Truly amazing talent. I gave her the only photo of the house I could get which was from Google...I then made a ton of requests to add things and change things to make it look like it did from my childhood...and she made it absolutely perfect.
