I love them. And I am really excited about sharing our new little project with you. We have a new website that we are launching today, it is called Your Architectural Portraits.com.  A place to get custom sketches of your home, or favorite place, place of worship or vacation spot, well pretty much what ever architectural image you love.

Here is an example of our first home together.
We have this up in our front room.   We have a lot of fond memories of this house,
and having this sketch is a sweet way to remember where we have been.

A few more examples:

Can you guess what the giveaway is?
8 x 10 Architectural Portrait!!!!

1. First you must be a Public Follower of this blog, located on my sidebar. (This is required to enter in any way, if you already are a follower move to step two.   I am sorry there is no way for me to see private followers, and subscriptions, so you must be a public follower.)

2. Leave one single comment on this post telling me that you follow.  Also, if you would like, in that one comment, please tell me what you would have sketched if you won.

You may enter/comment up to 4 times.  Once as just a follower, once for a re-tweet, once for a blog post and finally once for posting my button on your blog.   I think that about covers it.

  2. >Oh goodness! This is THE greatest giveaway I've ever seen! Home is such an important place–I would love to have a sketch of our house. A sketch of my grandmother's house would be so sweet too. Thank you! Beautiful artistry!!!

  3. >I am going to become a follower today…simply because you have the most interesting blog and I love sketches. I have been on the computer now for several years, but still am learning everything. For instance I don't know how to tweek or what it means to do that…also I have never ever attempted my own blog. So I can become a follower and maybe I don't qualify for this blog sketch, but maybe another one will come up I will be able to qualify for. He is a fantastic artist! If he doesn't charge an arm and a leg, maybe i could buy a drawing from him of my house. We have lived here almost 40 yrs.

  4. >I follow on google reader and google friends.

    If I won I think I would have the house where I grew up sketched or maybe some landmark or building from the town where I was raised.
