Edith contacted me to ask if I would be able to portray their dog Bruno for her husbands 60th birthday as a surprise, Edith and her family wanted a pencil drawing but also have a hint of colour in Bruno's eyes and coat and he was just perfect for this. I created them a lovely portrait of Bruno and our framer Jane framed it in a traditional honey wood frame. Edith has very kindly emailed me some photos of when her husband, Peter, opened the portrait and with Bruno on his lap with the portrait too! I hope you enjoy the page of photos and the lovely emails Edith sent during the commissioning process.
Hello Melanie, The portrait has arrived safely. I am absolutely delighted with it and the frame is perfect! The breeder has asked me to tell you she loves it! I can't wait until Peter's birthday, he will be so surprised and pleased, he loves Bruno! Many, many thanks. Edith x ps I will let you know his reaction when he opens his parcel. His birthday is on 25 April.
Hello Melanie, You have absolutely caught Bruno. I am really pleased.
Thanks again. Edith Melanie, I love it! Edith
Hello Melanie, My daughter Lynsey agreed (so did her fiance Paul) that you have caught Bruno perfectly. We think you have a wonderful talent. I would like you to arrange for the picture to be framed with the wooden frame you indicated. I love the warmth of the wood and my husband loves wood. With many thanks, Edith x
Hello Melanie, Just to let you know Peter was delighted with his 60th birthday present. We took a photo and I will send it on to you soon. Many thanks again. Edith
