Custom House Painting on Canvas

A Painting of a Childhood Home

Recently I’ve had the pleasure to work on a watercolor painting of someone’s childhood home, which my client is gifting, along with her siblings, to her parents for their 50th wedding anniversary!

Here it is so far:

Once finished, I’ll mat and frame this in a professional gallery-quality frame.

There is something very special about having a place to call home during childhood! I think about this often with my own kids, and they mention to me how much they love “their house”. Sure, I pay for it, but it pretty much has become their house!

I have fond memories of the house I grew up in as a child. Even though I only spent 10 years of my life there, it was during my formative years, so feels much longer in my mind than it actually was, and I suppose it it this way for many others also!
