I am a portrait artist out of Greenville, NC and I have been drawing and painting for the past twenty years. I use only the finest quality watercolor paint and French hand pressed watercolor paper. This makes a great gift. One of my most beloved belongings is a painting of my grandmother's childhood home where she lived with her 9 brothers and 2 sisters! This will be a heirloom that will be passed down from generation to generation. I will email you a picture of the painting before I mail it to make sure you are happy with it. Turn around time is about 2-3 weeks..
