Thanks for the encouragement, Mike. You are always so kind.

Yesterday the client visited my studio to see the work in progress. She brought her sister, who tried to help remember some small things like "a tree over here", "a vine over there". By the way, the last time they saw the house, it had a large garage constructed where in the photo there is the fence and the gate. The old look is really gone. This photo is the only reference left.

Well, the good thing is that they like what I did so far, and the work is under control
Curiously, I am a portrait artist and rarely paint landscapes. But I wouldn't classify this as a landscape either. The client loved that old house so much, she looks so proud when she says her own father built it with his men, using natural resources, that I see this project as the "portrait of a house".

By the way, this is the painting finished. The portrait of an old house. Frankly, I prefer painting people.

They have the right man for the job.
I was right. Beautiful painting Ant.

It's good to remind ourselves of our roots. From time to time over the many years since I've left I've driven by the house that I grew up in in San Antonio, Texas. I keep a photo of it so that I can remind myself from time to time.

I think I can imagine how your clients feel about this image.

Again, great job.

Ant,
This is beautiful and much more alive than the photo. No wonder your clients approve of your "portrait of a house".
