When we create the House Portraits, one of the most difficult parts is to paint the driveways. So we always add dappled light to them to create a level of interest to the painting. And I LOVE how this one turned out.

Russell has provided not only me with a great closing gift for my business, but he has also created a way for my clients to keep their dearest memories close. His creations manage to retain the most striking points of a subject and his creative experience allows for beautification of any points that would detract from the piece. I highly recommend Russell's house portraits for anyone who wishes to make a lasting impression on a buyer OR a seller. Great work, Russ!"

"One of my staff received a portrait for a member this week and  we just delivered on Tuesday.  The member was very excited and very happy with the service and the gift .  The member’s son had twinkle in his eyes and said ” mom is this our new home”  with a smile on his face.  This was a great experience for us and the members.
The members kept thanking us for their service."
