These two hand painted lavender flower pictures by Sophie Huddlestone, are temporarily in a Florist shop called Petite Fleur. They have not been framed but the shop also sells frames. I usually sell online, we all get so busy online that we sometimes we forget our own local shops. This florist is especially beautiful and very popular, situated in a quaint English village called Burbage in Leicestershire. Their website is https://petitefleurburbage.co.uk/ so take a peek and call in to see them.
Rocket Lollypop original painting by Sophie Huddlestone. Customer Paul Barnes framed this beautifully and sent me this photo via messenger, he wrote “I’m a Seascape, Surf Photographer living in Cornwall. And that I have a number of your watercolours, from I’m chuffed to own to hang on my walls”. I was very impressed by his photography website which is https://www.paul-j-barnes-photography.co.uk/ Enjoy the painting Paul and keep capturing those beautiful atmospheric moments with your photographs.
Poppies original painting by Sophie Huddlestone. A customer Paul Barnes wrote onto one of my Facebook posts and agreed to have it on here too. He said “I really like your work. Your watercolours are awesome!! And it’s not the first time I’ve bought one of your watercolours. As I’ve bought a few, not just for myself, but for family too. I’m ex military, and the poppies have a very personal connection, Thank you very much”. I was so thrilled to see the painting up and on the wall, it is so different to an artwork flat on a table while creating them. It certainly made my day. Thank you Paul.
On the wall is ‘Kitty Catcher’ by Sophie Huddlestone. The customer, Sarah Wood, framed the artwork and posted her photograph on to Sophie’s Facebook page (on the visitor’s posts section). Sarah commented “Floofus looks like the real life version of your painting!” It is always a real treat to see artworks in the customers homes, and a double bonus to see Floofus. I asked the customer if I could add the photograph to this page and was delighted when she said yes. What an amazingly beautiful cat Floofus is and with such a similar expression the resemblance is uncanny.
This customer purchased and framed the Unicorn Magic and framed it in a magical glistening frame. The customer sent this photograph to Sophie via messenger explaining that it was for her daughter as a birthday present. His daughter said “Thank you for my unicorn picture, I really like it with all the galaxy colours. His name is Blueberry I think”. The customer also sent me a photograph of a lovely hand written thank you note from this young lady and she even drew a unicorn on it. A future budding artist in the making.
Customer Jeremy Green framed in a modern way to suit the cool decor. He simply said ‘Looks great hay’. Hare Art original watercolour by Sophie huddlestone.
