How about a portrait of your bungalow?
Art Enables , located in Washington DC , will connect you with one of their outsider artists who will in turn create a work of art from your photo. Their prices are very reasonable, and you'll feel good knowing you're supporting a worthy cause.
This work is by artist John Simpson, who makes amazingly detailed mixed-media works of buildings and streetscapes.

Is that a good thing? Click here for the full story and cast your vote for the most deserving historic site which range from the Robie House to a bungalow in the Independence Park neighborhood. You're allowed to vote once a day, so in the great Chicago tradition, vote early and often!
Most 25 of the sites are holding open houses on Sept. 15 & 16 - it's a great way to see some of the treasures of Chicago architecture.
As of this post this post, the #1 site is the On Leong Merchant Association building located in in Chinatown. It's recognized for its colorful terra-cotta detailing and pagoda-style roof.
