Milly’s portrait framed

I received a lovely email from this year’s first client. It was a painting of Milly, the horse that the client trained. She had the painting framed and it is now hanging in her home.


I think the frame works really well with the painting and the surrounding wall. I used some reds in the bottom of the painting which accidentally matches the client’s wall. I love those happy accidents 🙂 I think the gold frame really compliments the browns and ochres I used in the portrait.

And this is what the client had to say:

Just wanted to send a photo of your wonderful painting of Milly, framed and up on the wall! The framemakers were even admiring it today when I picked it up!

Thank you so much, could not have a better memory of Milly!


Today I finished another painting, a portrait of a man. It is now hanging in my studio and I am going to scan it in the next couple of days. I will post it once it is approved by the client. Next up is a drawing of two dogs.

I have some website changes coming up over the next few weeks. I am going to refresh the gallery pages on the website with some newer work. I am also going to add some detailed pages for the paintings which are not available at the moment. So keep checking the site 🙂
