This was a very special commission for me - and a very special meeting too. Angela's husband coincidentally called Nicholas too commissioned a portrait of Sparky, only vaguely knowing that Angela and I went to school together here in Wales when we were young. He purchased Angela a gift voucher for Christmas 2010 and Angela contacted me in 2011 to get the ball rolling for a portrait of Sparky. We had a lovely catch up via email and when the portrait was completed Angela and Nicholas traveled from just over the borders in England to collect their portrait. It was a wonderful meeting after 20 years and so lovely to catch up again after all this time. My Nick took some photos of Angela and I with Sparky and his portrait and I have added them below.
