SallyAnne Rutherford‎Original Art by David Truman

I stumbled across David Truman on facebook when I saw a WIP of one of my most favourite places….Staithes, and felt compelled to follow him. My elderly father is a retired Railwayman and when I first saw ‘Six Sisters bathed In Light’ as a WIP I knew he would be interested. My father was thrilled to receive the original artwork personally from David. It made his day . My father thoroughly enjoyed chatting with David and his lovely wife Linda who are both passionate about their respective arts. (Thank you David and Linda)

David met my rescued German Shepherd ‘Kaiser’ and remarked what a handsome dog he was. My father commissioned his portrait as a special birthday present for me. David discussed at some length the setting for the portrait and listened carefully to my thoughts. I selected my favourite photo of Kaiser on the local moors. I am over the moon with the finished portrait. David has perfectly captured Kaiser having a moments rest before heading off again into the heathers. He has portrayed Kaiser’s great presence and energy. I can see the wind ruffling his fur and blowing the grasses. Kaiser’s portrait now has pride of place in my home !!!!
