Custom Pen & Ink Drawing of an Old Family Home

November 2, 2011

I love it when a customer commissions a custom pen and ink drawing and gives me a little back-story, history, or memory about the property.  The slatted windows, the barn built by hand out back, the crooked little sidewalk…this house was loved.

so much so, that they couldn’t decide between black and white and color, so I made a hand-watercolored print in addition to the original sketch…

Ahhhh…red doors!  I ADORE red doors!!!  (though I doubt if my homeowners association would approve)

If you’d  like to commission a drawing of your old family home, (and with the Holidays approaching, now is an excellent time), remember that I can make inexpensive archival-quality prints of Grandma’s house for the whole family….large or small, hand-watercolored or black and white, lots of options to choose from!
