TESTIMONIALS

Feedback from clients of portrait artist Susan Capan

(Portrait commissioned by daughter for mother's 70th birthday as she had no wedding photos. I was given two separate black and white photos of the couple at the age they were when marrried and some older coloured photos.)

(Letter from their daughter who arranged the commission and brought her parents in for their surprise portrait.)

To say Trish loved your painting is an understatement. Both parents were in shock when they saw the painting - they just could not get over it. And how extra special to meet the fabulous artist responsible. Trish says this was the best birthday she has ever had! She is taking appointments for viewings.

I can't thank you enough for your talent, your amazing patience & your kindness.

Best wishes

Hi Susan, I just wanted to thank you for making our 35th anniversary so great! When our daughter surprised us with the brilliant painting you did, I burst into tears and my husband nearly collapsed we were so surprised and thrilled. The fact that we lost all our wedding and family photos saddened us but the couple remaining photos that you patched together to make up the painting has been an outstanding success! It brings the memory of the day back to life for us, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you so much for the painting of our poor old dog, 'Chopper', we loved him so much and now have something beautiful to remember him by even though the photos we gave you were very dark you managed to bring out his features and have him looking as he did, thank you again.

When we presented the painting you did of the old family property to the Queensland Dairy Board member in front of hundreds of people at the Hyatt in Brisbane, there was a glistening in his eyes and we later found him sitting in his hotel room on a chair staring at the painting and softly crying, he loved it so much. Thank you Susan you did a great job!

Thank you for the wonderful painting of the Glasshouse Mountains, now I will have something to remember my time in Australia when I go back to Scotland.(David of The Isle of Skye, Scotland.)


Thank you so much for the very Australian, 'Sulpur Crested Cockatoo' in watercolour which I bought from your gallery. Its' outspread wings are very expressive and I can almost hear it screeching to remind me of Australia where I was born. I have it in pride of place in my office where my clients all remark on it and I love it. Thank you !

Everyone who has seen the portrait have commented on the 'eyes'. You do them so well. Great likeness, you've done a great job with 'my girls', thanks so much.
