New Home Portraits- Focus on the Landscape

by Susan Stillman September 16, 2016

So much of the attachment to our homes lies in our relationship to the landscape, the living and ever-changing backdrop of our lives.  These recently finished Home Portraits feature the owners’ favorite trees and plantings, framing the homes with color and life.

Notice the two paintings with crab apple trees in full bloom. I was called to photograph the trees at their peak, and returned later to shoot the grounds when the rest of the foliage came into bloom.  The painting at bottom is extended on both sides to feature the specimen trees lovingly planted by the family.
