Pet Portraits in Oils & Pencils From Photos

Groucho's Pet Portrait - Happy Client Testimonial

We received an enquiry in 2011 with a request to ask if we could paint a portrait of a dearly loved cat called Groucho who had sadly passed away. The portrait was to be a surprise for their family in June. We were delighted to paint Groucho in oils and we also had our local framer to frame the portrait with a beautiful matching frame too. You can see the presentation of the portrait with the family below.

Dear Melanie,

Talked with Lisa, and she is amazed how the painting captured Groucho's likeness from that old photo!   Kudos to you all!  Please tell Nick it's perfect!  Please keep me posted on the framing and final payment.

Many thanks.  We here in America are all setting the alarm clock for 4 AM to catch a glimpse of the Royal Wedding .  I'm setting my alarm for 6 AM EST as the Queen makes her entrance about 11 AM your time or a bit earlier.  Looking forward to tea and toast in bed while watching the nuptials!

Thanks again.

Best,
Terralynn

 

Melanie,
Just made the final payment.  Your Website is very user friendly and the payment pages easy to use and nicely tied in to the site. Thanks so much for your wonderful work.  Looking forward to seeing the painting of Groucho when it arrives!
Best,
