The Romantic Garden Co. paints  houses as portraits. Above and below are  a few Romantic Garden home paintings, which began as landscape design photos. Photo-painting, as this technology is called,  can give your house the look of an oil painting from  Impressionist,  post-modern era, wispy sketches and more. Although these pictured were used for job designs, similar photo-paintings can be  available to anyone simply for illustrative purposes.  They cost  $250. and are  high quality prints. How high is high quality? Print width is 17-19 inches. Camera (Canon 70D) resolution is 300 ppi. Paper is Epson archival exhibition grade, double weight and expanded fiber. Printer is Epson 3800, nine colors. The artistic rendering of a building is a portrait in the same way a face might be represented.  To some, the house portrait  is a kind of  an identity expression, and maybe a messaging device, as in Christmas cards. Or  gift to a client  from a sensitive real estate agent as a memento of the sale. Someone's home or office building, shown in an artistic style, can be a constant reminder of an old friend. A photo-painting can hang over the fireplace and provoke memories, an entry point for introspection. Those years there weren't so bad after all.
