Early in 2017 I was contacted by the card company Woodmansterne . They had seen my “Donkeys in Snow” painting on my Instagram feed and wanted to use the image for Christmas cards.
I was quite flattered as you might imagine and, after contacting Flora Lee who had bought the original painting, I gave them permission to use the image. I was paid a small sum and promised some cards for my own use once they had been printed.
Late last week I was surprised to open a box that arrived by courier contained quite a few packs of my Christmas cards from Woodmansterne. They had cropped the original image and called the donkeys “Christmas Morning”
I was also very pleased to see that the cards were for the NSPCC childline charity which makes them all the more special. They will be available shortly from local stockists…..Enjoy your day!
Back in March my detailed pastel artwork came to the attention of Alice Fenner of the Retired Greyhound Trustcharity through twitter and she contacted me regarding my undertaking a portrait of a retired greyhound. We agreed to a reduced price ( to cover my costs ) and completed the portrait by mid April. You can read more HERE…..
The finished commission is to be used to raise money for the charity through the sale of Christmas cards that have my portrait on them and you can see them HERE…They look great and I am buying some for myself. Have a look and support a charity that gives these beautiful dogs a chance of a good life in a loving home!
