Love the idea of doing house portraits AND hooking up with Realtors! I assume you get paid something(!) I took a look at your gallery via Daily Painters and am also glad to know there is someone (else) out there who paints in a WIDE variety of styles and selects a WIDE variety of subject matter. Thanks for the encouragement.
Yes, absolutely, I get paid... by the square inch. I offer standard sizes in case they want to frame them, but I paint the edges and wire them so they can hang immediately, as well. People LOVE their homes, and if they have to leave them, a portrait is a loving rememberance of what they had to leave behind. And in a painting, you can make it their favorite season, with the flowerbeds in full bloom and add or subtract the basketball hoop as needed. It's a loving gift. And I have plenty of work from the realtors on the north shore of Chicago.
