This past summer, Al and I were invited to the wedding of a lovely young couple. It was a very unique wedding and worthy of a unique house portrait gift. I simply wrote of my intentions in their wedding card, and they were excited about working with me on this portrait of their home in Detroit.
This lovely abode once was a residence of Ty Cobb, so they have dubbed it ‘Cobb Manor’. Working from photographs, and discussing possible color schemes and seasons, above is the final result- a fall portrait, complete with chrysanthemums and pumpkins. It’s just 8 x 10 on canvas, I framed it in a black floating frame, but neglected to get a photo of it before presenting it to them. I hope I did the home justice!
