Rosemary Cunningham from the UK telephoned our studio enquring about our Horse Pet Paintings. Rosemary wanted to commission Nicholas to paint her daughters horse Kewlia as a surprise gift in 2015. Rosemary emailed us with a wide range of photos to work with, a few of which i have added in the reference photo section below. Nicholas painted Kewlia at 14 x 14 size in oils on gallery wrap Italian linen canvas stretched professionally on hardwood stretcher - tupliwood. Rosemary also ordered the Chelsea Frame which complimented the painting beautifully. Rosemary and her family were thrilled with the painting, the hand over was the most fantastic i have heard of from our clients - read how it all happened....
Hi Melanie and Nicholas
Well I couldn't wait, so I was meeting Lucy and her husband for supper last night, so I got there early and placed the painting on the wall behind where I was sat, at first she didn't see it then she sat down and said ' I don't believe it' ...kept on saying it she was absolutely over the moon, everyone who was eating in that restaurant were all coming over to it and they all thought it was wonderful, so thank you again, will send you photos soon of it in situ which will be a couple of weeks as they are going to Mexico tonight so be touch soon.
Lots of love
Isn't that fantastic! You can read more of Rosemary's emails, along with stages of the portrait, the final scan, a close up detail. I hope you enjoy this page of information on Nicholas' horse pet paintings and if you would like to commission a portrait of your horse, please do email us at any time.
I was so excited I've been opening the blog everyday and was so excited when it was Kewlia
Hi Melanie and of course Nicholas
She arrived safely, I can't tell you how much I love it you have really captured Kewlia, i can't wait to see my daughters face when she sees the painting she has no idea, but her husband who sent the photo that you used has been following the progress and thinks it's magnificent as I do, I can't thank you enough, I have to save up now to have my dogs painted. I will let you know her reaction and send you a photo of it certainly when it is in situ.Thank you so much I just love it.
I love it I can't wait to see it for real my daughter is going to go crazy when she gets to see it.
