Custom House Portraits

Whether it's your home, a barn , your place of worship, or just a deck or patio, I can create a slate painting just for you!  Just mail me photos of what you would like on your slate and I'll create a custom slate for you  . Please try to get detailed photos. My paintings of your house are only good as your photos! Please give me as much information as you can, such as :

  • actual color of the house (photos and monitors can distort the color)
  • size - Most are 9x11 ,10x12 but I do have slate available as long as 18"
  • the amount of surrounding area to include
  • if you desire a particular season
  • whether you would like the entire slate to be painted or if you would like an oval with a border  such as in the photos below.
  •   For a slate cut like the one  called "The Raspberry House", please request that it be cut "Tavern style". Other shapes are : oval, rectangle., square, &  tombstone.

Places of Worship

  Whether it's to remember the church or synagogue where your were married, Baptized or attended as a child, a place of worship can stir many sentimental feelings. Some of these Churches were painted as gifts for parishioners moving out of the area, as a gift for an Honoree, or for birthdays

Shown below are the same church done in the different seasons.

 

Special Requests for Your Slate House Portrait

Do you want your house portrait to reflect your ethnicity, or culture? Or is their a particular favorite animal  or pet that you'd like to include. Just let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate you. For the slate called the Fitzpatrick's, I highlighted the family's Irish heritage by including some shamrocks. And if you click on the photo, you will see that I "hung" a slate in the flower bed with a big shamrock on it.
