The Painted House – Custom portraits of your home or business by Cheryl Peddie
My original house portraits make perfect gifts for a housewarming, wedding or engagement, anniversary or birthday. A business portrait is also a great idea to commemorate a store launch, milestone or anniversary. I am able to work from one of your favourite photos. Or, if you are in the Calgary area, I can do a custom photo shoot of your location. For more information or to order, call me at 403-201-6532. Or, you can place your order through PayPal online below.

2) Choose a Photo, Or Request a Photo Shoot
I can paint your custom artwork from one of your large, good quality photos. Lighting is key when choosing a photo to paint from. A strong sense of light and shadow are what create the design of any painting. Either morning or late-day light is the best – this creates side, or angled lighting that creates a strong sense of depth and interest. Please send me 3 to 6 photos to work from. Please choose a photo that is in the same season as that you’d like to see in your painting.
If you’d like me to choose a viewpoint for your painting, or if don’t have any great images available, I will do a custom photo shoot at your location. Fee: $75 (Calgary locations only; for locations outside of Calgary, please call me for a quote)
Not sure which to choose? Email me any images you’re considering: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll have a look and we can talk it over on the phone.
3) Let me Know of any Special Considerations you’d like to see in your Painting
When you order, you’ll be able to let me know of any special changes or additions you’d like in your painting. For example: removing a telephone pole that blocks an interesting design feature on your home, or, adding a family pet to the front yard!
Shipping, Packaging & Delivery
Once your artwork is complete, I will personally package your painting to ensure it arrives safe and looks beautiful. It will arrive presented in a gift-worthy white box with colour coordinated tissue paper – it will be a treat to open!
