"Nicola is a returning client who lives fairly locally to us. Each time she commissioned a painting she arranges a visit to our art studio. Nicola collected her three oil paintings including the horse portrait of Billy"
"Mum absolutely loves the painting! :) Here are some photos of the painting where it is at the moment. We aren't sure whether we're gonna keep it here or put it somewhere else in the house but thought I should send through some photos anyway :) "
"Rhoda has asked me to pass on that she was thrilled with the portrait, so it has been a great success. Nicholas has really caught the horses and brought them to life on canvas. We will enjoy looking at them for years to come. Kind regards, David Larmour"
We are always thrilled to hear form clients once they have received their painting. The portrait of Tequilla is in place on our clients wall as you can see above and you can read a beautiful testimonial from Jaime below.
Hi Nicholas and Melanie,
Finally we have the portrait hung and some pictures for you. Everyone that has seen it so far are just speechless and cannot believe how vivid and alive she looks. We have shed some more tears and are so delighted with the final result.
We decided we liked it best on the wall by itself and not above the fireplace in the end as it has such presence and we preferred nothing to take away from it. As it is now, it commands your attention the moment you open the door which is perfect.
Once again my heartfelt thanks to you both for everything and for this wonderful piece of art which I can treasure,
"Frisbee's portrait arrived safe and sound. Very robust packaging! I saw, once again, what a very handsome boy my Frisbee was. Nicholas has captured him beautifully. The prominence of horse and rider and the muted background are absolutely perfect. In addition, I am very glad that this portrait will be left unframed, as I feel that solid borders would 'imprison' the dynamic movement of the subject. Thank you. All best wishes Lynne xx."
"Truffie's portrait arrived today, I was so exciting unpacking it!! The finished picture is absolutely stunning, the detail that Nicholas captures is exquisite. Many thanks to both of you for being so lovely to deal with especially when it was hard deciding to carry on with the portrait after losing Truffie. I know I definitely picked the right people to paint my beautiful boy, I will cherish this forever.
Thank you for being so lovely, Best wishes Dawn xxx "

Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
OMG – the painting of Jake framed looks absolutely AMAZING!!! I absolutely love it – it’s just stunning!!! Thank you and Nicholas both so much for creating this amazing work of art! I just absolutely cannot wait until it is hanging in our dining room. Thanks so much!
Hi Melanie & Nicholas,
I am very happy to let you know that the portrait of Jake arrived safely! It looks ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS in our dining room!! We could not wait to unwrap it (very impressive packaging that completely protected it!) and hang it up last night. The frame is also gorgeous and fits perfectly with the portrait. Thank you both SO MUCH for the amazing work that you do. It has far exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier! We will definitely recommend you to others!
"Ted visited our studio to collect his framed oil painting of Ballycastle King along with a framed print. You can read more about the portrait on Ballcastle Kings dedicated page - Retired Race Horse Portraits..."
"Hi Melanie, Thank you so much. The picture is lovely, you have captured him really well, it shows his personality and beauty brilliantly. I am sure that my friend will love it because I do. Best wishes. Karen."
"Hi Melanie and Nicholas, We are still very happy with the portrait. Until Alice has a home of her own, it remains here in her bedroom. Whisky is still thriving aged 20 now. Kind regards Nicki and Alice"

Rich surprised me with my portrait of Jasper today. It's absolutely amazing!! I love it!! I had Jasper for over 15 years and knew every marking and hair like the back of my hand and you've captured them all perfectly, thank you so much. It's wonderful! Thanks again
It looks great, Olivia will love it! Olivia isn't here until later so we haven't opened it yet - exciting!
