A Place Called Home for Decades
Upon learning that his neighbors were selling their home next door, Chris knew it would be an emotional decision for the couple to move after so many years in the neighborhood. So, Chris decided to mark the occasion with a deeply personal gift to his longtime neighbors.
Adding Familiar Personal Touches
In any other year, the couple who lived here would likely have planted colorful floral arrangements in large flower pots. Had they not been busy packing, they might also have been proudly flying the national flag next to their front entrance. In designing the painting composition, these personal touches were added back in, to more fully represent the house they called home.
A Daily Reminder of Their Home
The couple now enjoys a uniquely meaningful reminder of the home they occupied for decades. Displaying the painting in their new home will forever remind them of a place they held so dear.

"When we work together, you'll be guided through each step of the process, know what to expect, and there will be no surprises about a person's likeness. In the end, you'll have the custom painting you have always envisioned."
