The above painting is a sample. It is of my family cottage at Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, where my family spent almost every summer weekend. I paint a customized painting of YOUR present or childhood house or area that creates a WOW EMOTIONAL CONNECTION. 


Great gifts! When you receive your painting, you can print copies for your family and friends, or put the scene on coffee cups, mouse pads, or other endless ideas. It is most enjoyable watching the surprise smiles of your family and friends as they search through their memories. 


Painted on canvas, original oil, 16x20 canvas. Painted in an alla prima technique with loose brush strokes. Your painting can be customized per your suggestions.  I can also add objects and people from different photos. After purchase, I will need a photo or two and I will contact you to discuss details.
