Dog Portraits and Pet Portraits Testimonials


Hi Nicholas,
Today is Rob's 50th Birthday and he is absolutely delighted with the portrait of Sonny, it is like having him back again. Sonny died last September at the ripe old age of 16 1/2. The likeness is remarkable, from the warmth in his eyes to the wet nose! The quality of the painting is stunning, thank you so much. I have attached a photo of Rob with Sonny.
