I always enjoy hearing from my pet portrait clients. A local client picked up his project last week and he sent me this very kind e-mail note:
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you
again. Your unique product combined with this rare Tibetan Mastiff,
makes this gift a one-of-a-kind original. We kept asking ourselves what
we could get for someone who
has the ability to buy anything for himself that he wants, and we found
it with this art. Thank you so much! We will be giving it to him
tomorrow and have no doubt that it will be very special to him."
Today I spoke with a terrific repeat client that is doing her 4rth project with us. She always orders 24 x 24 because she says the thought of going down in size makes her feel guilty, as though maybe the pet with the smaller print is going to know somehow or appear to be less loved. I can understand that thinking. Those of us with multiple pet households must always strive to be fair after all.
Below is a shot sent in from a client for me to use as reference on his next portrait that I just started working on this week. I think this client is on project #5. This is a great shot that shows how terrific a grouping can look.
