house portrait: "Dappled light" - 02/19/16 04:56 AM
One of the most important aspects to a stunning painting is the manipulation of how the light falls. Painting is essentially the sculpting of light on the page.
And this portrait captures it perfectly.
Enjoy the portrait,

house portrait: A house portrait for an elderly client - 12/17/15 03:46 AM
I just adore this house portrait! The homeowner was an older gentleman that just loved all of his flowers that he planted along the pathway, he took great pride in them. So it was our job to make sure that we paid attention to them when we created the House Portrait.
Enjoy the portrait,

Scott and Ray at the Harris Johnson Team purchased this House Portrait for their clients. And I just adore this painting, how the setting sun in the background highlights the small shrubs in the front of the house. Just stunning!

house portrait: "Shades of Blue" - 10/20/15 07:43 AM
“Shades of blue”
I love how this painting is wrapped in shades of blue including the trees in the background. Blue is a very tricky color to bring across a painting, it can easily overshadow it.
Enjoy the painting,

Rob Johnson purchased this House Portrait for his clients. I love the light how it falls across the lawn. One of my favorite things is to see dappled light falling across a lawn like that.

I just love how the browns and tan colors are caught up in the sky and then mimicked in the house colors. It’s a wonderful painting and I know that the homeowners are going to love it.

house portrait: The painting turned out brilliantly - 08/26/15 08:24 AM
When my clients made the hard decision to list their vacation home of 15 years, the sale was bitter sweet.  I wanted to give them a closing gift that was memorable and heartfelt and Russel's home portrait was exactly what I was looking for.  I was thoroughly impressed with his service as he was prompt, professional and enthusiastic.  All the details of the order were managed well including the cross country shipping.  For the impact and quality the gift delivers, the price is incredibly reasonable.  The painting turned out brilliantly and I know my clients will be thrilled when they receive … (1 comments)

I really love how we tied in all of the greens into this painting. It is very difficult to work with so much green, it can very quickly become overwhelming, but this is just perfect.

house portrait: A way to keep my clients memories - 08/26/15 07:57 AM
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!"

house portrait: "Mom, is this our new home?" - 08/26/15 07:49 AM
"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."
 
 
 
Thanks
