Christmas 2020 was a busy time for me with pet portrait commissions but I haven’t been able to post any until I was sure they had been gifted. Now that I can, here is Dodger the Cockapoo.
We have a wide range of Sidmouth greetings cards, featuring both paintings and photography. Here is a winter snow scene of The Byes taken by Bruce.
Lorraine is fully booked with portrait commissions for Christmas but you can still order an Art Den Portrait Gift Voucher as the perfect, thoughtful Christmas gift. The voucher itself has your personalised message printed on beautiful Premium Art paper. (Please allow 2 days to for the voucher to be professionally printed). For further information please …
Everyone at Libra Court is feeling festive and happy to be back. Pop down and see us!
While the shop is closed during the second lockdown, I’ll still be working on pet portrait commissions from home so if you’d like to give a unique gift this Christmas please feel free to get in touch. We also have gift vouchers available.
Not only do we accept painting commissions but we also offer pet photography. Bruce recently photographed Toast, a gorgeous American Cocker Spaniel puppy, in black & white.
I usually opt for a neutral grey background for the pet portraits but sometimes people want something a bit more colourful. This is Rosie.
This handsome boy is Pablo, a recent pet portrait commission for a thoughtful and unique 40th birthday gift.
This cute portrait of Mabel enjoying a day at the beach was commissioned as a surprise gift for a special birthday.
We’ve just received a new greetings card delivery with some lovely Sidmouth designs that are only available in The Art Den.
Here’s little Ralphie with his framed pastel portrait, which he has just received by post. Ralphie was the winner of one of my portraits in a competition run by VetLink. Thanks to Ralphie’s owner for sending us this cute photo of Ralphie with his prize.
We’re excited to announce The Art Den will be reopening on 21st July. We’re looking forward to being back in the courtyard with our old (and some new) friends and hope to see you there! Here’s a painting done back in May, during lockdown, of the bluebells on Salcombe Hill.
The lovely people at VetLink Online recently ran a competition with the two prizes on offer being pastel portraits, by Lorraine, of the winners’ pets. Here are the two finished portraits, which are on their way to the new owners.
To complement Lorraine’s paintings we carry a range of Bruce’s landscape photography prints of Sidmouth and the surrounding area. They are available in a range of sizes and can be purchased either framed or mounted. Bespoke sizes can also be ordered.
If you want to surprise someone with a unique and thoughtful gift, then a charcoal sketch of their favourite pet can be an affordable but elegant choice. Charcoal portraits are available mounted or framed – all we need is a photograph.
Although the shop is closed, I’m still accepting commissions for pet portraits during lockdown. Here’s a recent one of Chutney!
Most of my pet commissions are for dog portraits so it made a nice change to be asked to create this quirky portrait of Charlie the cat during lockdown.
