House Portraits

One of my neighbors stopped by a few weeks ago to ask me if I would do a drawing of her grandmother’s house , she had a photo taken not long before the house was torn down .
She had a lot of fond memories in this old house …
So I said I would give it a shot . I haven’t done many house portraits.
Here is the result .
I kinda like how it turned out.
It’s a little larger than I would have liked to have done , but she wanted it big enough to put at the top of the stairs .
What do you think ? Should  I do more of this kind of thing ?
Is anyone out there interested in a house portrait ?


  1. Your neighbor is blessed to have a friend like you! Wonderful job on the portrait!


  2. Sharon, I just found your blog. I love the house portrait - you are so talented! I've been surfing the web all afternoon - I live in NJ & it's 100 degrees outside! All the best, Donna

  3. It's very cute! I think you should go for it! There are lots of people who do house portraits, why not you too??

  4. You did a fantastic job! Wouldn't it be fun to have your house on a Christmas card with a may be on to something! Stay cool! Jan

  5. It looks beautiful. I would love one someday--just no money right now. What does something like that cost?

  6. Oh Sharon, it's beautiful! You really did a fabulous job. My husband had a house painting done for me some years ago and it has always been one of my favorite things. I think you should do more of these.
