Happy 'victim' ...


One of the disappointing things about gift caricatures is the ' Thank you very much ' and out the door goes the framed picture - okay I've been paid - but it's really nice to hear how the final presentation went. Just got this photo back from one of the Christmas commissions - I'm really happy with the likeness and I know from the family this guy loved it !

Great that your client shared that with you--I'm always happy when I hear or see how the presentation to the recipient went, too.
Happy New Year to you, Tel!

Tel said...

Thanks Emily and Edo - and a happy new year to you both.
I'm glad you agree Emily, it's not like 'doing a job' I've handed over some really nice pieces and never hear from the clients again !!

Wonderful! Your work is simply THE best Tel and anyone who is lucky enough to receive it should always be over the moon!

Tel said...

Many thanks Steve - I'm blushing - you're not so bad yourself mate.
How's that COLD weather over there ?
Just to annoy - 38C tomorrow, 40C Friday - we should swap climates for a couple of days !!

A thaks after always makes it more special. I echo Steve's comments!
Must go shovel the driveway now!

Thanks Patrick and Niall - appreciate that - you know the good 'un's as they go out the door. Then there's the other sort ............. !!
Keep shovelling Kelly - enjoy, remember I'm paying to pump that free cool air you've got into my house !!
