Double Horse Oil Painting

Greg Piske, USA, purchased one of our gift vouchers in December 2018 to give to his wife as a Christmas present. Jane was delighted and therefore sent us photos of their horses Finn and Mac for the oil painting. Nicholas was thrilled to receive the photos and as you can see below the painting turned out beautifully. Jane asked for the portrait to be 24 x 18 in size and also for us to frame it too. She chose the Hampstead Frame and we feel it compliments the painting tremendously. Jane emailed when the painting arrived….

Hi Melanie & Nicholas,
The painting arrived this afternoon safe and sound in perfect order.  What a stunning, perfect reflection of each one.  From Mac’s permanent bed head forelock to the dimple on Finn’s nose, I couldn’t love each of them more.  Also you caught them each magnificently!  And yes I cried and yes I’m still weepy.  I have no word to express my joy at having them back with me.  Nor am I able to thank each of you enough.  
Love to you both,
Jane & Greg

Jane also sent a beautiful email when she saw the final photos along with a photo of the painting on their wall….

Oh Melanie!
It looks absolutely fabulous!!  Nicholas has captured each boy’s character perfectly.  Greg took a look their portrait and was as thrilled I.  He said that I would likely cry each time I looked at it for a while and I had to agree as my eyes were welling up.  It will be a true test of my patience waiting for it to arrive. 
Many, many, many thanks,
Jane

We chose the Hampstead frame for this painting, along with Jane of course, as the deep tones of the frame enhance the dark areas of the painting in the horses eyes. The gold line equally enhances the light brown and golden tones and pulls everything together. We feel it is important to have combined tones and colours between the painting and the frame to allow them to marry together and become a unit rather than two separate entities. We hope you enjoy viewing the framed photos below.
