~~~~~~~~~~~~ORIGINAL CUSTOM HOUSE PORTRAIT~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.........................by Central New York artist Patty Fleckenstein

A " House Portrait " is a great way to help preserve cherished memories of home.
Show off your house or building in an elegant, richly- detailed original artwork.

*****************ORDER NOW FOR CHRISTMAS! ************************

THIS LISTING is for an 8" X 10" Pen and Ink with Watercolor, unframed.
The finished House Portrait comes all ready to mat and frame.
I like the standard sizes listed below, because you can get nice affordable frames and mats.
8 X 10 Pen & Ink....................$75
8 X 10 Pen & Ink with Watercolor....... $ 90

11 X 14 Pen&Ink.....................$115
11 X 14 Pen&Ink with Watercolor.....$150

16 X 20 Pen&Ink.....................$375
16 X 20 Pen&Ink with Watercolor.....$425

Let me know if you'd like a custom size.

My House Portraits are hand drawn & painted , using your photos as reference.
I use archival pen&ink, watercolors, and touches of acrylic paints, on acid free heavyweight bristol paper or watercolor paper. An 8 X 10 picture is on paper size of 9 X 12.

You can indicate things that you would like deleted, added, or enhanced.
Send along a photo of your pet if you'd like him in the painting!

COMPLETION TIME varies, depending on the amount of orders I have. When the commission is confirmed, I will put your artwork in my schedule. .Before your order is confirmed I can quote you a completion date, so please be sure to check with me first . ( Usually 3-5 weeks)
If you are considering a Christmas gift please order early (by Oct 31) or I can't promise that orders will be finished in time.

A Gift certificate is the best idea for a "last minute" gift. (meaning under 2 weeks). I don't like to rush the artwork, and I really try to devote time and attention to each individual commission.

Also please let me check out your photo(s) before the order is confirmed . We need to be sure it is a photo(s) I can work with so that the finished artwork will be all that you want it to be.

NOTE: I'll send you a digital copy of your finished House Portrait for your approval before it is shipped.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ HOW TO ORDER

<> You can contact me right from my Etsy Shop.

<> My House Portraits are done using your own photos as reference. ( hand drawn and painted)
Please let me see your photos before you actually pay. You can send them through Etsy attachments, or e-mail, or mail.

<> Choose either pen & ink drawing, or watercolor painting.
(Watercolor House Portraits are first rendered as finely-detailed pen & ink drawings, then painted.)

<> Choose the size you'd like. The sizes you see here are for the artwork unmatted or framed.
Remember, a mat and frame will add more inches all around. For example, the 8X10 picture could go into a standard 11X14 mat and frame. The 11X14 picture could go into a standard 16X20 mat and frame. I like these sizes for my House Portraits because you can get nice afforable standard size frames . Let me know if you would prefer a custom size artwork.

<> It isn't necessary for me to make a custom listing for you. You can buy any listing in my Shop that describes what you want. (The House Portraits that you see in my Shop are just samples of my work. Of course your purchase will be an original custom House Portrait done from your own photo(s).)

I have been drawing and painting pictures all my life. I love a range of subject matter & artists' media. Creating original " House Portraits" in rich lovely pen&ink and watercolor is a favorite specialty, and over the years I've done hundreds of them. I went to school at Pratt Institue in Brooklyn.I work from my home studio in pretty picturesque Central New York State.

the end!
