Hi Penny,
Apologies for the delay in contacting you to thank you so much for Ruddles portrait.
You have (as you did with our labrador in 1994) captured him exactly.
I love it.
Many many thanks.

Hello Penny,
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your hard work on the portrait of Mulberry. 
It is absolutely stunning, and now takes pride of place in our living room. Marcus was very shocked when I gave it to him, there was plenty of tears and he says it’s the best present he’s ever had.
So thank you so much, your AMAZING!!

This is Jack through and through, brought to life in a beautiful detailed painting which has picked out his character perfectly.
I still cant stop looking at it in wonder.

Dear Penny and John
We wanted to say a big, big thank you for our portrait of Ernie. 
We still have to do a double take just to make sure you didn’t put the wonderful photo of him you took in there by mistake!
It is in pride of place and we absolutely love it. 
We also appreciate the detail that John went into choosing the frame to match our existing one. 

With our thanks and very best wishes for 2013.

Penny and John,
Just a note to say ‘thank you’ to you both for the painting and the prints. Pat really loved the painting and it now hangs in her study.
The girls are also delighted with the prints, although they knew about the painting they didn’t have a clue that they were getting prints for themselves to keep.
With best wishes for 2009,

Dog Portraits

Dog Painting commissioned from Goldington in Bedford.

Dear John and Penny,

We actually had our family party at the end of February. I’ve been waiting ever since to see who took the photos of Frank unpacking the portrait of Tilly so I could send you a copy.
Unfortunately it seems every one thought someone else was taking a photo!
Anyway everyone was delighted with the portrait especially Frank who hadn’t seen the photo you had sent me.
You are so talented Penny.

One of our son’s said he had been wondering how you were going to paint Tilly’s fur and, like the rest of us, was very impressed with your result.
Her hair started to shed, which it shouldn’t do. I believe it is because we can’t use a commercial conditioner on her so her hair has become very dry now she has to be washed 3 times a week.
So I found a conditioner recipe which contains an egg, honey, cold pressed coconut oil, olive oil and steeped camomile flowers. It’s only the added lavender that stops her smelling like a sweet omelette!
Thank you both for all your hard work
Our regards to you and your family, Ann and Frank Preston.

Dear John and Penny.
Many thanks for the wonderful portrait of Tilly , it was a great present and I was very delighted to have received it . Penny , you are truly talented , how did you paint the hair so perfectly ,and her natural smile ? It Is like her in many ways.
It is amazing how you turn a blank canvas to such a delightful picture .
Very well done and thank you .

Cocker Spanie Pet Portrait

Cocker Spaniel from Manchester

Hi Penny
Sorry to keep you stewing!! The painting arrived but then I had to take Lewis for a walk as we have been waiting in all morning for it to arrive (I didn’t want to go out earlier & risk missing the delivery)…..
Thank you so much Penny, Ted’s portrait is a STUNNING MASTERPIECE…the likeness you have captured is so incredibly lifelike that he could almost walk off the page. I LOVE IT – I knew it would be good but I didn’t expect it to be this good!!!
The frame is so beautiful & the oval mounts are just perfect – thank you for sorting these out for me. I am really happy with the overall size & can’t wait to get him on the wall
My heart hasn’t stopped thumping since I opened it, as soon as I calm down I will give you a ring to thank you personally.
Very Best Regards
