Forum member Sandy [Chorrells] has very kindly offered that for any commissions she receives through Cavalier Talk she will happily donate 20 back to Rupert's Fund
:jmp::thnku:



This is Sandy's website http://www.petsreflected.co.uk/

So you too could enjoy one of her stunning portraits of your own Cavalier [or other dog] and help Rupert's Fund at the same time!!



For example, this is Sandy's portrait of Skippy

Skippy's guardian is forum member Dandelos, who won the portrait in a recent auction on Cavalier Talk. :thnku:

I would love to get one! I am worried about it getting damaged in the post. How do you think it will go?

I am still considering having one done too. Just gotta find the right picture of my boys. :)

Alana this one was sent from England to the US with no problems - Sandy packs them very carefully :) They are not framed or mounted, so should be ok - if you are worried e-mail or PM Sandy, I think the majority of her commissions travel by post.

Lani, that's great that you are going to have one done :) You have some lovely photos of your boys so I can't wait to see it!

I love this on Sandy's site of two Springers together

PS it is really hard to get Spaniel eyes right, Sandy is one of very few artists whose work I have seen over the years who is able to produce realistic eyes - showing that gentle, loving expression.

Like Nicki mentioned, Sandy packages her work with care -- we received ours all the way in Los Angeles and it was well-protected by the hard-shelled mailing tube she used.

are these paintings or chalk?

I think Sandy mentioned she uses medium Prismacolour pencils.
