Custom Home Painting Commissions
Capturing the unique beauty of a home is my passion. I’ll work with you to understand what makes your home special, and discuss what elements of your yard, home architecture, and even family history you want included. I specialize in illustrating the interaction of homes with nature, humans, and animals.
I create paintings with graphite, ink, gouache, and watercolor - I don’t trace photos or use any AI computer programs. As an illustrator, I blend sunlight, shadow, nature, narrative, and emotion to create an image much deeper and richer than a snapshot.
The process is straightforward - you can simply send me an email to begin. Once we determine the timeline and budget, I’ll share preliminary sketches. After you approve the draft, I’ll get to work on the final piece. I use archival-quality paper that won’t yellow or degrade with time, and ship paintings flat to allow for easy framing.
Pricing is determined based on several factors including size, project timeline, and number of people and pets to include. The cost starts at $200 for an 8. x 10’’ painting of a home done in a whimsical, soft way.
"I recently had a Claire Baldwin commissioned painting done for me of our family cottage in Maine. This cottage is a place that has been in our family since our boys were born. It is a place that holds so many wonderful, special memories and Claire Baldwin captured that perfectly in her painting! She incorporated all the little details of our cottage, even the clothesline that you can barely see on the side of the cottage. Her renditions of my whole family including our children, grandkids and my parents really gave us the feeling of being there.
Again, it is such a special place for us, and this painting is one we will cherish for years to come! I would highly recommend Claire Baldwin. She was very easy to communicate with and her painting definitely exceeded expectations!"
