Welcome to our latest dog portrait of Dessie and Jasper. The oil painting was commissioned by a lovely client here in the UK. It was to be a surprise gift for his wife on her birthday. The size was 28 x 22 inches and painted by Nicholas. Sadly Dessie the Black Labrador had passed away, however Jasper is still going strong. The dog portrait will of course not only be a wonderful present for Johns wife, but for the whole family too.
John asked if we would handle the framing of the portrait for him and we are always happy to arrange framing. We have the most amazing framers with many years of experience between them, they handcraft and hand finish all of their frames and they are exquisite.
John requested a very plain frame, without any detail or gold lines in. Our framers were very helpful in finding us the perfect frame and if you scroll down you can see lots of photos of it.
Hi Melanie and Nicholas,
The painting looks fantastic and can’t wait to see it for real. Nicholas has captured them perfectly. Dessie always happy and Jasper with that glass half empty look. I will call or email you when we get the painting and everyone has seen it.
Thank you very much
Dog Portrait – Engraved Plaque
As you can see from the photo below Dessie and Jaspers plaque looks beautiful. It is a mirrored bronze plaque and is also the perfect accompaniment to the portrait. Our engravers make each plaque bespoke to our clients requirements. Also if there is enough depth and not too much text, they create the additional border line around the edge, which finishes the whole thing off beautifully. We hope you like it too!
