This month we will be doing something a little different and fun in addition to the usual fun we have setting up a new show 😃.
I thought I’d give you a little background first as to how this idea came to be... Last Christmas (as a gift for my husband) I had one of our very talented artists (Lisa Hebden) do a painting in memory of our beloved little Yorkie Kiwi 🐶 As you can see from the before and after below, it turned out amazing and my husband loved it! After showing our little painting to several people, a few of them suggested this would be a fun thing to offer our customers.
So, after conferring with a good client, a few staff and the above mentioned talented artist (Lisa Hebden) that’s what we did! In June we sent out an “exclusive email” to our mailing list asking our clients to submit their favourite photo for the opportunity to have it turned into a work of art by one of our many talented artists. The fun then began! We received beautiful photos of beloved pets, childhood memories, holiday moments and many more!
Over the next few days we’ll show you some of the photos submitted, why it was a favourite, along with the artists interpretation of that photo (follow our social media below for the latest).
I’m sure you’ll agree with me, our artists did a beautiful job. No Surprise! 😍 On a personal level this event has been an amazing experience! From viewing the photos and the beautiful stories that came along with them, to the artists who loved the idea from the word go, but especially the excitement from our clients who’s photos were chosen by one of our artists 😍 This has been a bright light in an otherwise extraordinary and challenging year!
