House proud

Here is a recent "house proud" illustration that I finished and shall be sending off today. The owner of the house requested that I show what her home would look like with out the large tree and the larger middle bush blocking the window in the middle.
I also added a larger light fixture and a dormer in the front entry to open up the foyer and I do like things in threes. It is fun to see things in a before and after way in order to make decisions.
I have a few other "house proud" sketches that I am working on. This is the last week of school for one of my children and our twin sons graduate. It will be a week of endings and new beginnings. Lots to be proud of around here!

I can't think of a better way to see the before and after effects of a few tweaks than a PVE illustration!

Enjoy your week and all the bittersweet joy hit holds. Congrats to you and your boys!
