Grateful thanks from someone who knows

I was delighted to have a message over the weekend from the woman who was given the painting I did of ‘Wooster’ a few weeks ago by the client of mine who had commissioned it as a gift for her, but hadn’t told her he was doing it until he gave her the finished painting.

She thanked me for putting so much work into the painting and capturing this lovely dog who has been such a special beloved pet in her life. I thanked her and knew she knew this dog far better than any one, and I had never met him, I only had two photos to work from…he wasn’t even in this setting in the photo, but I painted it so that it would look naturally that he was…

So I know I’ve done by job right, if she was so touched by my painting of him. I’d got it right, and that makes me proud!
