Sometimes the only way to get the painting that you want is to actually have an artist paint it for you... ~Artist Christopher Wheat copyright 2011


I have been painting custom portraits for clients for over 25 years, if you are looking to have a home portrait or other custom painting done choosing the right artist makes all the difference in the world.

I have been focusing on waterfront home portraits throughout the New England Coast (Nantucket, Cape Cod, Maine and the Finger Lakes) painting such subjects as

Custom home portraits, Cottage portraits, Yacht portraits, Boat portraits, Landscapes, Lake views and Seascapes, Business Portraits. This is what I am known for, the best custom paintings.

A home portrait painting by Christopher Wheat is not your average portrait of your home. It is a fine art painting that captures mood and memories along with the subject your home. Take a look through our home portrait gallery Client comments and see for your self why you have found the right artist.

Allow me to create a special painting for you and your family to enjoy for years to come!

Some things to think about when deciding on a Custom painting.

Choosing the right artist! When looking to have a home portrait (Custom painting) done it is very important to choose the right artist to do your painting. You have found the right artist and here is why. The details of the painting are what make a great custom painting come to life for you the purchaser. I have worked with well over 500 clients to create that special custom painting. With over 25 years of custom portrait expirience. I welcome you to look through my site to view my other paintings along with custom portrait paintings Cilck thie Image links to see more samples on this page to get a feel for what I do. I'm sure you will see for yourself that you are in the right place,and have found the right artist. Be sure to send a request at the bottom of this column to get the best pricing of the season.

What view or Scene would you like? In some cases, as with waterfront home portrait, you may have a few options for a painting. A couple of possibilities would be a view from the water, with the water in the foreground of the painting or a view from the front of the house with the water in the back ground. As we walk through the process I will discuss the options to help you determine the best over all view for your painting.

What size painting would you like? Think about where your painting will be displayed in your home or office. Is it a mantle piece or will it go on a small wall? Will it be a focal point for the room or will it be an accent piece? Also when choosing a size, will the subject of the painting be best represented well in this size? Please note: This is a very important question. It is best to capture a sprawling waterfront home in a larger painting due to the amount of detail and area covered. Additionally, some subject matter will lose a great amount of detail if the size is not proportional. So, if you have any hesitation about size, please ask for guidance, as I would be happy to share information based on my experience. I want you to be comfortable knowing that you will be satisfied with all aspects of the painting, including size.

Some of the most common sizes include: 16x20, 18x24, 24x30, 24x36, 32x 46 & 36x48.

However since this is a custom painting, we can work around any size you desire.

Please note that I price my work based on time and scope of the project, and what I have sold similar works for recently. Price quotes are typically guaranteed for a maximum of 30 days, but are subject to change with out notice.

The only way to hold a price is to book your portrait.. This will reserve your portrait in my painting schedule and hold the current price. On occasion, my schedule can get booked solid, so you will only benefit from reserving your place and price now.
