I recently ran a free prize draw for someone to win a unique pet portrait. The prize was an original acrylic painting of one of their lovely pets, worth £150. I thought it would be a great way for one of my followers to start 2018!
The prize draw closed on 31st December 2017 and a couple of days later I randomly drew a name out of the metaphorical hat (it was a box) from the hundreds who had entered. I was very nervous! I had no idea what type of pet they might have, where they lived, or how demanding they might be…
I needn’t have worried, Jessica the prize winner, was absolutely lovely. She sent me lots of photos and details of the character of her gorgeous Yorkshire Terrier, Maggie. We agreed on a pose for the painting, and I then sent her some photos over the next few weeks so she could see how her painting was progressing.
Here are some of the work in progress photos:
Jessica was thrilled with the finished painting and she said: ” Thank you so much for sending our amazing painting. We love it!!”
