What a lucky choice! Joe was THE best to work with and I would recommend his work and his customer service to anyone! The sketches he made of my husband's family home and family-owned store were so well done! He even made some suggestions about some options that I might chose. I was so happy that I've asked Joe about more prints to give to my children. Joe's THE BEST!!!

It's hard to put into words the beauty of the home you recreated. So many beautiful memories came flooding back when I ripped open that package and I am forever grateful for you preserving this home that meant so much to so many people. There was so much Love in this house and we can see that each and every time we look at this picture. Thank you so very much for you hard work!!

Absolutely fabulous artist and excellent customer service. Highly recommend. I received a personal phone call to discuss the best photos to use for the portraits. I purchased two portraits to give as gifts and they were very well received. I will be purchasing for myself in the future! Unique custom gift. Thanks so much!!

Additional policies and FAQs
To COMMISSION A PORTRAIT:
Start with a convo(email) to me so I can give you an estimated delivery ( from receipt of photos), answer any questions you may have and instruct you on supplying the photos for reference.

Place your order and make payment through Etsy. When I receive your order, I will let you know how to get the photos to me by email or regular mail.
Within 24 hrs of placing your Etsy order I will contact you to get the process started.

You can mail or email me your photos ( emailed photos should be high resolution for color & detail ). I will let you know when I receive your photos. All photos sent will be returned.
PHOTOS: Your photos should be of the angle & preferred view. A slight angle showing the full front and a little of either side is better than a straight on view. A full view of the home in 1 photo is preferred. You can take the picture as far back as possible and move closer for the detail shots. Detail photos can be of anything which is important that can not be seen clearly in the main angle photo. Windows, doors, home detail etc. Make sure the sun is on the house for shading & correct color. Avoid taking photos at midday because the sun is directly on top of the home and the front is usually in shadow and dark. Do not take photos at days end. Do not photograph on an overcast day the colors will be washed out.
You may also include additional instructions on what to add or eliminate( telephone poles, cars, neighbors home etc. I can create the artwork in the season of your choice. When creating a color piece it's best if you indicate the colors you see in the photos because everyone sees color differently ( especially on different monitors and printers) We will work together thru the creative process to create a lasting memory.
