Gift of the Week – Classic Home Portrait

classic home portraitDo you remember the house you grew up in? The address? How it looked from the outside? The details of your room and places where your family gathered? A home is an important part of a person’s life. Your home is more than shelter. You create memories there. It provides a sense of belonging. Just as you can have individual and family pictures taken over the years to remember those moments in time, now you can have an artist draw a classic home portrait of your home.

Phil Thompson hand creates your classic home portrait in Chicago, Illinois. Begin by sending a picture or two of the home you want him to draw. Then the portraits are created in pen and ink. The drawings are 8” x 10” and arrive matted to 11” x 14”.

Who gives a classic home portrait as a gift?

This is a great gift for a real estate agent to give at closing. It is perfect to do of the house they are selling or buying. It captures a piece of their memories from a period of time. Imagine leaving a home that has been loved to move on to the next chapter of life. Having a classic home portrait to take with you is a way to remember the years spent there. A couple or family buying their first home will love having the beautiful artist’s rendition to hang on the wall once they move in.

Make it more meaningful.

The custom nature of this gift makes it meaningful in itself. The artist will add a family name to the portrait, if you desire. You could also frame it and have a plaque engraved with the address, years lived there, or the family name to make it more meaningful.
