Fidget aka ‘The Fudge’

It’s so nice to meet the ‘sitter’ of a portrait before I start to paint.  I always work from a photograph and if I haven’t met the pet it’s sometimes hard to gauge their personality.  When I dropped off the portrait of Tèa in May I was lucky enough to meet her brother Fidget, a Pomeranian/Spitz.  Even with his mohawk haircut, he is just a bundle of fluffy loveliness.

It’s easy to see why he has the nickname ‘The Fudge’ because he is so sweet.

When I deliver a commission there’s always ‘that moment’ when the client peels back the brown paper to reveal the portrait – What if it’s not what they wanted?  What if they don’t like it?  What if I haven’t captured ‘the look’?   My fears were allayed when I got home and my phone went ping.  When I opened the notification and saw this I could’ve cried.
