Heather commissioned a pastel portrait of Rikki and you can view images and read our correspondance with Heather below.
Melanie and Nick!
Rikki's portrait is absolutely gorgeous! I want to thank you and Nick for the wonderful job. It was so nice getting to know you and Nick and hearing about Tom, all the animals and your little spot of paradise. :)
I can't wait to have Rikki's portrait framed and hung for everyone to see. He will of course be the first one to see it and I'm overjoyed he is still with us to do so. I hope that I will have more pets in the future and be able to work with you again. For now I will pass your info along to anyone looking for a perfect pet portrait! If you would like a picture of the portrait after it's framed and placed on the wall, I will gladly send one.
Keep working with and having fun with Tom! He's so lucky to have found a wonderful home.
Thank you again,
Hope you had a good weekend! I received Rikki's portrait in the mail Friday afternoon. It's as beautiful as the pictures! It went immediately to the frame shop and hopefully will be back home and hung in a week or two, just in time for Rikki's 21st birthday! I will try to get some good pictures of it sent to you after it's hung. :)
I hope Tom's rescue class went well! Talk to you again soon.
Rikki's portrait came back from the framers and we all LOVE the final outcome! Even the framer asked who the artist was and said she had never seen such a beautiful pastel portrait before. I passed along your info to her. :) Rikki did not want to pose for a picture ( he was really tired) so I sent you the best we could get.
Thank you and Nick again for everything! You truly have found a wonderful niche in life. :) I love visiting the blog and hope to stay in touch through it.
Heather and Rikki
