dream house love

Before I start each new house portrait, there is the moment when I first open the picture file and find out what kind of house I'll be illustrating for the next couple of hours. The moment I opened the picture of this beautiful Victorian, I actually gasped. So lovely!

This next portrait is my most commented on. When I posted it to Facebook, people really responded to the modern, clean lines. And, oh my, that balcony.

If I can't live in them, illustrating them has to be the next best thing.

Oh, and I know I said I hoped to open up the shop for new orders in February, but that probably isn't going to happen and the waiting list just keeps growing. If you are hoping to have a portrait done in the next 6 months, I recommend adding your name to my waiting list. Just email me at houseloveshop@gmail.com to be added to the wait list. Please include your name, contact email and what size print or package you would like to order. For more information on sizes, packages and prices, please see my shop announcement. Thank you!

Also, you may have noticed that the site looks a little different. I've finally made the switch from Squarespace 5 to Squarespace 6. The site is a work in progress (as usual!), with lots of little details that need tweaking, but overall, it looks pretty good. I especially like the way the House Portraits portfolio page turned out. Do you mind the location of the post details (date, comments, etc.)? It might take some getting used to...
