Memorial Portrait of Diego by Lenore. Lenore came to my home many times over the years since she acquired her darling Havanese, Elvis. During her visits she came to know my Havanese, Diego. Elvis and Diego became great pals when Elvis stayed here for doggy care while Lenore had to be away. This past summer Lenore offered to paint a portrait of Diego. She took photos of him in his backyard. From those photos and her experience with him she captured the essence of his character and personality in a portrait she delivered to my home recently. Diego passed away in September at 17+ years. Hearing he had passed Lenore wanted to finish his portrait to comfort me in my grief at loosing my buddy of 17 years. Her condolences and kind gesture and understanding has been a comfort. Diego’s portrait is in pride of place in my living room. I pause when I pass by and my heart is comforted as I remember how he lived to love everyone he met. Lenore’s depth of perception so clearly comes through in this portrait. Her kindness and thoughtfulness and artistic ability is a treasure. Thank you, Lenore.
Lenore has completed a beautiful portrait of my granpuppy for a Christmas gift! With every attention to detail she nailed her features and expression where she jumps of the canvas. Amazing artist!! Forever grateful
With my wife’s bday approaching I was looking for something special. We lost Barney a little over a year ago and she really misses him. Lenore was so great helping me find the right image and she did such a fantastic job capturing his personality. It is a hit with many tears shed at his unveiling. Thanks so much, this will be cherished for a long time.
Lenore is an amazing artist. Like many other people in the Shawnigan community I saw her art on a local page. The image she painted for me was absolutely fantastic. From a distance the image looks like a photograph but as as you get close you can see every brush stroke lovingly applied. Lenore captured his sprit in her painting. I highly recommend her work and am grateful for her talent. You will not be disappointed.
Lenore has gift for painting cats. She captures their peace, beauty and warmth.
She was wonderful to work with, very responsive and the painting turned out better than I could have imagined. Seeing it in person is even more impressive. Extremely happy with the whole experience and will definitely recommend. Thanks so much!
My family and I are so grateful to you for this gorgeous portrait of our sweet dude. Thank you with all our hearts.
I contacted Lenore after seeing some of her work on FB posts. It was a bit impulsive of me, but our family recently lost our beloved dog Fang, after 15 years. She was the absolute best dog in the world and we were gutted by the loss. My 9-year-old son was having a difficult time, along with the rest of us. I got in touch with Lenore and she responded right away and was able to answer my questions promptly and be clear with what she needed. We went back and forth a bit on what we wanted to see etc. She painted the most lovely capture of Fang and even had it ready for Christmas. I wasn’t able to get to pick it up right away and Lenore offered to send it to me with a friend. I opted to wait and pick it up for my son’s birthday. We all love it! Thank you again for creating a great keepsake that we will treasure.
