This is actually the Devereax House in Salt Lake City, Utah that has been inserted in a scene from Richard Paul Evans New York times best selling book The Christmas Box”. It was commissioned by him.
My daughter was the model but it turned out to look like me. I researched to find out what the original wall looked like.
This is the 2nd painting I did of this house. The first one I had sold to an owner of a tool company in trade for a table and miter saw for my husband. When Richard Paul Evans wanted to buy it he jacked up the price. So that’s how I came to do a newer and much more complicated painting.
