‘Jaffy’ the Wire Haired Fox Terrier’

I posted this painting of Jaffy to Canada just before Christmas a gift to the clients Mother and received this message recently;

Hi Derek…

My mom was delighted with the picture.  The detail is amazing, and his expression which is so key to a wire fox terrier is perfect.  The colour is spot on, including the black shading around his ears.  It’s wonderful how the coat texture is so clear, including the waves on his beard, and even the little wispy bits.  My mom declared it to be the “best Christmas gift ever”!  Oh…..one other thing, Jaffy’s registered name is Brocolitia Make Me Proud.   He was actually born with in England and exported to Canada at 6 months.

Thank you so much!

‘ Classic Day Out ‘

Classic Day Out’ is  a water colour of Alan Davis, in his cherished MGB Roadster leaving Lewtrenchard Manor. Alan’s daughter, Catherine, commissioned me to do this painting. Alan now retired, has been in the motoring trade for 47 years, 30 of which were at the helm of his own business. He has completed many restorations of old MG’s and has been a member of the MG Club for over 40 years. Although I have never met Alan, through this painting I feel that I have got to know him partially. Alan used Lewtrenchard Manor the backdrop to the painting, for  business events as well as personal occasions, the  occasion this time, as the number plate say’s his 70th birthday. What a surprise.
