Phew!!   Got there in the end ... this is the last of the Christmas portraits and as the snow is clearing in our part of  the county I'm hoping we can deliver the portrait this afternoon.   The recipient lives in a fairly remote area so I'm not sure whether her Lane is passable ... but fingers crossed!

and this is the portrait framed - the mount is cream and the frame is oak but the light isn't great for taking photos today.      As I've said in a previous post, Noggin was a very 'solid, square' dog so I wanted to use a square mount and frame and have him 'fill' the space ... he was a real larger than life character and sorely missed!

I do hope his 'mum' likes this

Right ... off to brave the snow and hopefully we'll also get to visit some family members today else they'll be disinheriting us :-)


  1. Wow Sue, this guy turned out great! I like how you framed the piece too...compliments the portrait very well. Was this done using pastels on sandpaper?

  2. Thank you Colette :o)

    Yes, this is on the dark grey pastelmat and I used pastel pencils throughout

  3. Lovely work Sue and it looks great in its frame. I'm sure it went down brilliantly. Have a great Christmas and lets hope the bl*^%!y snow leaves soon!

  4. Thanks Tracy
    Merry Xmas to you and yours also xx

    Couldn't agree more about the snow

  5. Merry Christmas Sue - excellent portrait!

  6. Thanks Lene
    Merry Christmas to you too and best wishes for a happy and successful 2011
