Frisbee's Pet Portrait - Happy Client Testimonial

Lynne commissioned us in 2011 to paint her horse Frisbee who is sadly no longer with us. Lynne and Frisbee use to compete cross country and Lynne had many photos of her time with Frisbee doing what he loved best. So many in fact that Lynne created Nick a webpage full of wonderful photos that would help Nick to paint the portrait of Frisbee. Lynne's photos were fairly old but nick was able to work with them to create a painting in oils that Lynne is thrilled with. Lynne very kindly emails us the photo below of her when the portrait had arrived and was displayed on their wall in their home. They toasted the painting with Champaign, you can see the bottle has one of Frisbees brushing boots around it on the right on the table. I have also added a few emails that we received form lynne thanking us for our hard work. We very much enjoyed working with Lynne on this project and are thrilled to see the finished painting on the wall.

Hi Melanie and Nick

Yes, I've just seen and commented on the blog update. Really exciting. Ian and I have a bottle of champagne ready for that big day. Patience - must wait for 'sticky edges' to dry out! :)

Thanks again for being such amazing artists. I enjoy looking at all of your work. It is always of such a consistently high standard.

But I like my painting best of all (big surprise!)

All best wishes
Lynne

Hi Melanie and Nick

I've taken a look at the final stages pics and think it is a very skilled and beautiful tribute to the horse who 'stole my heart' forever.
I can't begin to convey the joy that this painting gives me. I LOVE IT! It all looks accurate, and I appreciate that it may look a bit darker than it actually is due to cameras, lighting of the time, etc. Please do a final scan, so everyone can see how beautiful it is.

You will recall that I'd like a giclee print of this painting (when ready) to go to the photographer. THANK-YOU BOTH for being such talented, professional and friendly artists. *Hug for Nick* (for bringing my 'big boy' Frisbee to life).

All best wishes
Lynne

Hi Melanie & Nick

Frisbee's portrait arrived just after 10am today - safe and sound. Very robust packaging!

I saw, once again, what a very handsome boy my Frisbee was. Nick has captured him beautifully. The prominence of horse and rider and the muted background are absolutely perfect.

In addition, I am very glad that this portrait will be left unframed, as I feel that solid borders would 'imprison' the dynamic movement of the subject. I really do hope that other horsey folk will see Frisbee on your site and think: 'Mm, I'd like an action painting too'.

I have already taken some photos of the portrait in our conservatory - against a pale cream background (the best light on a dull day). Tomorrow, some sunshine is forecast, so will take more photos of the portrait in situ.....
:)

All best wishes

Hi Melanie and Nick

My husband took this photo this morning, as we both enjoyed a champagne toast to our new Frisbee oil portrait.  There was a brief sunny spell, before the skies went grey again, so we grabbed the opportunity of using natural light.

As you can see, I am delighted with this commission, which Nick created for me. It's fine to have photographs of a cherished pet, but oils have an almost magical quality. I really do believe that Frisbee is going to land over that fence and keep on galloping. So yes, this painting is very special indeed.

Many thanks, once again, to you both for being professional artists who really care about their clients. I shall follow your current and future commissions with interest.

All best wishes
Lynne
