A Portrait Of Poppy

A year or two ago Em, whose excellent blog about life on Dartmoor is to be found here did a portrait of Teddy for us. She captured him perfectly and we all love the picture, so when Pop came to live with us I decided I would really love a portrait of her too.

We waited until she was fully grown and for the last six months I have been emailing Em various photos which never seemed to quite capture Poppy's character. Finally, I took one that did and this morning the completed portrait arrived.

I love it. It is Poppy to a 'T'. Well done Em, and thank you.

    1. She is very clever at getting their character to shine through the picture- her drawing of Teddy graces the side bar of her blog and that too is perfect of him.

  6. Is it my imagination, or is the photo of her reversed here? The one I have is the other way round! So pleased you like it and I'm going to say a previous congratulations on (nearly) 100 followers! I seem to have lost one since this morning. Can you actually un-follow someone like un-friending on Facebook? Turn that photo round! xxx

  9. What a lovely portrait. I had one done of Jack from a lady I met at the farmers market, advertising her paintings. We do love our family pets, eh. I love your portrait and it does suit Em to a "T"
