Jack – A3 Watercolour

This is an A4 Watercolour study of a Jack Parsons Terrier. This portrait was created as a leaving present for Mrs Gillian Rowcliffe the current Headmistress for the Red Maid's Junior School in Bristol. This was presented by the Year 6 girls as a gift to Mrs Rowcliffe as she is due to retire at the end of the Year.
The portrait was mounted and framed and gladly received by a very surprised and slightly emotional Mrs Rowcliffe!


Dear Mrs Peace

Imagine my complete surprise when I opened the parcel on Friday to find a picture of little Jack? Seeing him at school was slightly incongruous but I am delighted with the portrait. You have painted his 'Winston Churchill' look when he sits in the sun when the back door is open. All he needs is a cigar! Thank you so very much for such a wonderful present...a complete surprise, believe me! I am working out where to hang it but at the moment it is propped up on the mantelpiece for everyone to admire!
With kind regards
Gillian Rowcliffe
