House Portrait – Austin Area Home

Here is my latest House Portrait – luckily I got to play around with shadows and strong light again this time.  I really enjoy how these turn out when the trees get to shade a pretty good portion of the house portraits paintings.  I did this one as another realtor closing gift in my marathon painting sessions in December.

Its a bit slow right now so I am working on a few things, mainly a house portrait of my own home (wife’s request) and a series on the historical homes in Plano Texas.  I took a walkabout last summer and have some great reference photographs to do some house portraits of these awesome looking historical homes.

The realtor closing gifts are turning out great and I am having a lot of fun doing these house portraits.  Of course they make great closing gifts, but I wonder if an ambitious realtor could use them as an eye catching way to attract visitors in the print advertising?  I for one would stop and take a second look at if in a direct mailer or online.  I think its an idea worth pursuing but I will need to talk to some more real estate agent friends to see what they think.

So, what say you, would you use a custom painted house portrait in print advertising for a house for sale?  Feel free to comment below.  I am always floating new ideas and I would love to hear from you.
