Original Custom House Portraits by Central New York
artist Patty Fleckenstein (that's me♥)

♥ This is a sample of one of my past commissions
♥ My House Portraits are created using your photos as reference
♥ Hand drawn and painted with pen&ink and watercolor

♥♥♥♥♥ TO ORDER♥♥♥♥♥
♥♥ Please choose Watercolor OR Pen and Ink only (from the drop-down list up on the right.)
♥♥ And choose your size preference ( 5x7 , 8x0 , 11x14)
♥♥ I would like to see your photo(s) before you order. Almost all portraits are do-able, however a building that is obscurred by heavy foliage,etc. may be iffy. Also photos that are taken with extreme perspectives can be a problem. Make sure that you have at least one clear photo that shows the whole house in the angle that you like best, or I can help you decide from multiple angles if you want. I use the primary photo for the angle/view, the structure, and the perspective. Additional close-up shots are helpful for details.
You can submit your photos to me on Etsy messaging, e-mail, or mail.
♥♥ To proceed you can order from this listing with Pay Pal, credit card, Etsy gift card, or personal check. When payment is cleared I will add you to my schedule.
♥♥ The completion time always varies ,depending mostly on my schedule of commissions. I update my turnaround time on the little notice underneath my shop banner.
I don't like to rush the artwork . If you need a last minute gift or a tight deadline there are gift certificates available in my shop.
♥♥ I ship priority mail USPS. The artwork is backed with sturdy foam board, protected with a cello sleeve, and extra cardboard support.
♥ I use archival fade-proof ink, transparent and opaque watercolors,
acid-free 140 lb. Canson watercolor paper.
♥ A scan of the finished portrait is sent for your approval before shipping.
♥ You can indicate things you would like added, enhanced , or deleted.
♥ Send along a photo or description of your Pet if you'd like "himmer" in the portrait
♥ A caption such as an address etc. can be included
♥ The portraits aren't matted or framed, but they are in standard sizes so it's easy to get nice affordable store-bought frames.
