"Bridie, Eddie & Millie"

Border Terriers

Pastel Sketch, A3

Bridie, Eddie & Millie are all Border Terriers - such delightful wee dogs! I met two of these dogs on Stewart Island, Bridie & Millie in January this year, but sadly Millie has since passed away. Working from a combination of the clients' photos and some photos I also took at the time. Iris & Peter Tait who own a boutique b&b on Stewart Island, Sails Ashore.
Eddie belongs to Iris & Peter's daughter, and he lives in Auckland.

"Looks absolutely lovely, although we had a bit of a sniffle when we saw Millie. A very big thank you to you both….. we are thrilled. We decided on a very plain Rimu frame, as we wanted all the attention on the painting, not on the surrounds. Museum glass as you suggested, and we have the three names on the back, with the date of Millie’s death…. so nice to see her as she was when the photo was taken, rather than her last few weeks." Iris & Peter Tait, Stewart Island

Border Terrier dog pastel portrait

Received these lovely photos of the Tait dog family (Border Terriers Bridie, Eddie & Millie) from Stewart Island. Their pastel sketch in situ, beautifully framed in a rimu moulding with museum glass. Always enjoy seeing my artworks in situ... thanks for sharing Iris and Peter! I had the privilege of meeting Bridie and Millie on Stewart Island in January this year, sadly Millie has now passed away.
