gift of art

The gift of art is a special gift, a portrait of a home, a pet or a simple work of art elegantly framed has everlasting appeal. Flowers fade, chocolates melt, art is everlasting.
A framed work of art, perched on display on a buffet adds personality and flair when entertaining.

Such a lovely idea. I know someone who had this done recently as a gift for her husband. She consulted with an artist to do a watercolor of their first home...it's framed and hanging...very special.

Always the appropriate gift. To have a house portrait done for someone special surely pulls at heartstrings. I love the frame you chose for this illustration.

You are so right. Art is a wonderful gift. I treasure the little house card you did for me and you know have it on my entry table.
