House and family portrait

This was a lovely commission -  originally it was to make a portrait of a house but I wanted to introduce the people who lived there into the picture. So, I asked for lots of photos of favourite things inside the house, bit and bobs, which would give me an idea of who lived there. I enjoyed introducing instruments, children's drawings, pets, toys and other nonsense into the picture, as well as the family. The bunting decoration was a flight of fancy adding fun and colour to the finished piece.
