Laura contact us in 2007 from Wales UK (sadly not quite local enough to us that we could meet them) to portray their beloved dog Moss for her mums birthday. Laura kindly took some photos of Moss, the portrait and her mum for our website. I have added quite a few of our correspondence below too.
Oh Melanie and Nick thank you soooooo much it is absolutely beautiful!! You have really captured Moss's character - that cheeky grin! Cant wait to get it now! Thanks again so much!! I will definately email you when Mum has seen it - give you some feedback! Haha! Thanks again both of you!
Hey Melanie and Nick,
Got the portrait. It is absolutely beautiful!! I am soo greatful to you and Nick it is such a beautiful peice! I cannot wait to give it to Mum now (have to hide it away in my room until March) I am sure she will be over the moon!!
Thank you both again! Laura xx
Hi Melanie and Nick!
Well yesterday was D-day!! It went very well, Mum said it was the best present EVER and even got a bit teary! The whole family cannot believe how much it looks like Moss and how some how you have captured his cheekiness. Moss gave a it an indignant sniff, but I think he is jealose as its prettier than him!! We are going to get it framed now and put it up in the kitchen. I will send you a photo of Mum and moss and the picture once it is framed.
Once again thank you so much for this!!
Hi Melanie and Nick!
I am sorry it has been so long. Anyway finally got the picture framed, it looks fantastic!! The people in the shop liked it so much they took your details as they do get customers asking about animal portraits. Moss is now hanging proudly in the kitchen, every time I go past I cant help but smile. Thank you so much again! I have attached 2 photos of Mum and Moss.
Thanks again, Laura. xx
Thank you so much, you both have been so great! I am sure that I will be getting in touch with you at another time for either another one of a dog or a pony/horse or maybe even a sheep if you are lucky! (I have a few that I think of as pets Haha)
Anyway thanks again, Laura xxx
