Memorial portrait testimonial

I short but touching post this time…

Last week I sent an A3 portrait to a gentleman who had commissioned a drawing of his wife who had sadly passed away.  I hadn’t heard from him the day it should have arrived which I thought was a little strange.  I often get an email or phone call to say thank you.

The following day a card arrived through my letterbox…

“Got the portrait this morning and I am delighted with it.  It’s as if you knew her.  You captured her lovely laughing eyes, and made it so full of life.  Although I still miss her so much, seeing her face smiling at me every day through your drawing will help so much”

It goes without saying that these words pulled at my heart strings.  I feel very privileged that the commissions I draw I can mean so much to someone.  This is certainly a card I will treasure.
