Caroline has been a wonderful person to know. We met through her sister, and both her and her husband have been enormously encouraging to me and my art. Therefore, it was a huge pleasure to be asked to do a painting as a surprise for her husband.
The idea was to do a pet portrait with a difference. Her Husband had always loved a painting by Mick Cawston called By the Warmth of the Fire and that was to be the inspiration for this painting, but based on their own beloved lurcher.
The surprise delivery went extremely well. Caroline commented:
"Well - I must say - it is one of your good ones!!! I think it is really very good indeed. Thank you, it's perfect"
