Another Holly Jolly House Painting
This is a traditional brick style ranch home that looks like it might have been built in the late seventies or early eighties. Nothing special about it, although it is beautiful. The photo I was given lacked contrast and the plants were fading. The leaves had lost their leaves. I magically returned the leaves to the trees and brightened up the shrubs and grass, giving the painting a late summer appearance.
After I showed her the proof she mentioned that she might not want that little pine tree in front of the house, so I'll probably be doing an edit.
