Eric's Christmas present

Thought I'd share this with you. My friend Lorraine's daughter Emma is an incredibly talented artist and  kindly agreed to undertake this rather big challenge.

I wanted a painting for Eric of ALL our dogs past and present, in total 14! I sent Emma a disk with lots of photo's of all the dogs and then asked that she decide how best to do it and this is what came back.

 A close up of the big fella Jim Buba who we miss so very much!

Eric was totally overwhelmed and very emotional!To say he loved it is something of an understatement! of course the photo doesn't do it justice, Emma has totally captured each dog to perfection, I know she was a bit worried that with so many hounds she couldn't add as much detail as she would normal BUT I have to tell you in real life this is absolutely fantastic.

Emma is quite happy to take commissions and if anyone is interested then please contact me and I can put you in touch with this lovely young lady whois so very talented!

A few more pictures of paintings Emma has done, now wouldn't they just make the best birthday or Christmas present or why not just treat yourself LOL. I'm definitely going to ask Emma to do something of Vikki's wedding in May.







and a few humans





We had to pop out this afternoonand when we came back Lucky rushed out to greet us and looked so much more like herself! was a teary eye moment for sure LOL.

What a truly gorgeous painting! I am in awe of Emma's talent. I can understand how Eric got emotional when he saw the painting.

How neat that Lucky is feeling so much better already. I would have been teary too.

This is so spectacular that I don't even know what to say. I can only imagine how surprised Eric was. I would have probably fainted. Boy, to say Emma is talented is an understatement.
