Rated 5 out of 5 by from My gorgeous boy! The slate arrived much quicker than I expected...I had said that I would like to give it as a Father's Day present and all the stops were pulled out to ensure that was possible, so thank you to everyone at Orvis who made that possible. Regarding the portrait...where do I start? When I first saw it, I was a little taken aback as it was painted more in "blocks" of colour, rather than with fine brush strokes to show off individual hairs,BUT it really is my beautiful boy Archie...the artist has captured both his nobility and cheekiness of character and all from a photo which was slightly out of focus!!! The more I look at it, the more I love it and I know that my husband for whom the gift is intended, will ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! This is a wonderful way to give a unique gift to a person you love,of a pet you adore, and at a very low price. I have pencil drawings of past dogs and they cost a lot more than this and are not as unusual as the lovely piece of slate these are painted on. You can probably tell by now that I am quite pleased with my purchase !!!!! I urge anyone who has thought about buying this, but not done anything about it yet, to go ahead. You will not be disappointed. Just one down side....how do I top this when I buy my next gift?!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful My beloved Rottie passed away this year and I ordered this slate to honor her. The artist did an amazing job replicating her soulful eyes and playful smile. I am proud to display this wonderful work on my mantle. My gorgeous girl will never be forgotten.
