Having just joined under the name of Chorrells I would be happy if someone would like to organise an auction between members of cavaliertalk for the chance to win a 16" x 12" drawing of their Cavalier, some examples of my work can be seen in the link, I do portraits mostly for fund rasing to help with dog rescues throughout the country and overseas. The portrait would be drawn using coloured pencils and would be sent unframed and ALL money raised from this auction would be donated to Rupert's Fund. I hope this is ok :)

It's not just ok, it's FANTASTIC!!


icon_welcome to the board and :thnku: so much for your really kind offer.

We are about to have our Autumn auction, so perhaps I could post this as one of the lots?


You have some fabulous portraits on your site, and it's wonderful that you use your talents to raise money for rescue and charities. You obviously have lots of experience of doing Spaniels :D, I particularly love these ones

Oh my goodness! A) What a great idea! and B) You are SO talented!!! I will bid til' I am broke to get a picture done by you!!!! Wow, love them.

Nicki, when does the Autumn auction start? This would be a great addition, how generous you are Sandy :lotsaluv:


This is my first year in Australia where I am going into SUMMER instead of Autumn and Winter, very very strange! I keep thinking October = Pumpkins, wood fires, and sweaters. Not here :rolleyes:

Hi Nicki,

I just purchased a few things from the cavalier matters gift shop and wanted to donate this throw to the auction.
I have sent an email regarding not posting this to me as it will hopefully be part of the auction and I will pay for it to be posted to someone else.

I think it is absolutely gorgeous, so if the donation of it doesn't work out i will happily have it!
Even if it does, i might just buy my own any way!

Thank you for allowing me to auction it Nicki :)
I was thinking of donating a spaniel bowl or something similar, but I thought maybe something from the gift shop because it is helping twice as much!
I will definitely have to buy myself another one. Maybe after christmas, or maybe i will request it FOR christmas.
