Wow! That looks amazing. I like the addition of the tags hanging off the bottom.

Peg it's BEAUTIFUL! :heartbeat:

I forget what size did you get? I wish I would have gotten Buttercup just a little bigger. I'll know for next time.

I've got to say that I keep going by and looking at it and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

Mark understood so well what I wanted.....he's excellent to work with. For my next one - I've ordered a painting of Bun Bun for Rosie's daughter Emily....since he was her first rabbit but he never made it to her. I think she's taken his death a bit hard. After that - I think I'm going to do 5 X 7 paintings of GingerSpice, Puck and SugarBear....

For the last 4 or so months of his life - Tiny spent 8-12 hours per day - under my desk....at my feet. Whenever I got upset - he would give me kisses. If he heard me laughing about something - he'd nudge me for a treat.

It seems only appropriate that his painting will go over my monitor - watching over me as I am in the office. He'll be just a few feet from the desk he loved so much....

Susan - my painting is a 9 X 12. I looked up the invoice....I paid $147 for it - that included the extra tag, the shipping, insurance, etc. Mark gave me a good price (with a discount) because I am having him do several paintings. I know that price might seem high to some....but it was well worth it to me and Mark let me make payments on it - and when I wasn't pleased with Miss Bea he reworked her coloring, etc. Mark loves rabbits and has a rabbit and he ENJOYS painting rabbits and I think it shows in his work.

For those who are wondering - here is his contact information:

Thanks for letting me share my excitement here. I'll post the picture in Tiny's Rainbow Bridge thread too.

What many folks may not realize....is that the night Tiny took ill - I ONLY noticed it as soon as I did because I was in my office typing a note to Mark about this painting. Normally, I try to leave my office when my work shift is over - but that night - I was in here about 7:20 pm and I turned to look at Tiny and tell him I was ordering his painting - when I noticed he was in distress.

I do not know if he would've made it through till that Sunday if I had left the room and not come back in for several hours.....as I planned to do as soon as I was done typing to Mark.

So in a way, I feel like this portrait (and talking to Mark about it) - helped to extend Tiny's life by a few hours - so I had a chance to adjust to the idea of losing him .... and a chance to say "goodbye".

Ok...I'm bawling again...I'm such a cry baby.

But if I can't have my big boy back.....at least I can have this which just seems to represent him so well......Mark really captured a lot of the essence of Tiny and Miss Bea's relationship....and he put up with my stories and pictures and stuff so he could get to know Tiny too.....

I emailed Mark about my excitement and told him I'd love to write a testimonial for him and he is going to use this part of my email...

Here is what he said...

Already have a testimonial..."it was like you captured so much of Tiny's spirit and his gentleness and compassion and so much of the essence of who he was".

:biggrin2:
