I managed to fit the work into my commitment to the Highland Cattle Society and Nick duly delivered the work in early July, just ahead of the plan!
I've just received the loveliest email from my clients mother:
We are so delighted with the portrait of our little terrier commissioned by my daughter. The angle of her head, her eyes and nose are unbelievably true. Her coat looks real.I see her now as in real life,and so thank you again for making her live on.You are truly remarkable artist,
Thank you again,
I must admit that it brought a tear to my eyes and perked me up after a very hard show at Harrogate! Thank you to both my client and her mother for such a wonderful response.
