Mike and Margaret (UK) came to the cottage to collect their painting of Sally and Phoebe which they commissions in June 2011. They arranged a short break in Wales to coincide the painting being completed and saw it for the first time when they came up to the studio. They enjoy visiting wales and the landscape behind Sally and Phoebe in the painting is of the Gower, a beautiful part of Wales on the coast. They were thrilled with the outcome and felt Nick had captured both dogs beautifully, particularly Sally's eyes. I took some photos of Mike, Margaret and Nick while they were here and have added a couple below for you to see. I hope you enjoy viewing them.
Hi Melanie and Nick, Thank you for an enjoyable morning with the lovely the tea and cake. We enjoyed meeting you both in your lovely cottage and admire your efforts in restoring the original features. I have told Kate about your dedicated work with Tom and the behaviorist from Exeter. At the moment, Sally and Phoebe are sitting proudly next to Venus and Diana. Of course, we will send you a photo when the work is framed and hung. I have forwarded the photo of us on your sofa to Kate and Luke and await their comments. We will keep in touch and keep an eye on your blog. All the very best and thank you for everything, Mike and Margaret
