You have not let us down Derrick. The painting is better than on Mini Gallery! We both love the painting and now we just have to find a place to hang it. Your work and your talent blows me away.
I keep revisiting the room where we have temporarily placed the painting.
I love the eyes on the birds! Your painting is a like a little world that you can escape to. We are both very excited to be proud owners of our first Derrick Fielding painting!"

I've wanted this painting for about 3 years now just never had either the finances or the space and during this week I made the sale and now its sitting proudly on my wall. I think everyone should own at least one painting or print by Laura. I feel so proud to finally own the one main painting I wanted and it's funny that after all this time it hadn't sold like it was waiting for me to take it home :0) Thank you for being so talented and making me and my wall very happy :0) Happy holidays!"

From myself who is beginning my collection, to my parents who have art from famous artists from all over the world, Eammon's pieces stand up with the best. He uses amazing colours and lines and the result are pieces you could stare at for hours. I recommend checking out his page - these are unknown gems and I trust he will become more well known over the next few years."
"I have purchased eight of the animal paintings by Eamonn Ruane to date and I no doubt will be buying more in the future.

"The painting ['Parm Place Garden' by Jacqui Slade] is absolutely beautiful - thank you so much. It will have pride of place in the sitting room alongside a painting of my father's garden in the 1940s."
"Thank you for the quick delivery of the paintings, I am delighted with them and they look fantastic on my walls. They beat any paintings I have seen in the shops and the fact that they are not mass produced adds to the pleasure I get from them. My friends are already asking about you as an artist and are keen to see your work. It has been a pleasure doing business with you."
Jean 03/05/2008 ['Fire Flower' and 'Golden Brown' by Gaynor Henaghan]
"Just to let you know, the painting arrived safe and sound - excellent packaging! We are extremely delighted with the painting - so much better seeing it in real life. It now has pride of place in our new conservatory adding colour and vibrancy to a room that was purposely left simple with a neutral colour scheme. It has been a pleasure doing business with you."
Richard, Renfrewshire 01/05/2008 ['Somewhere in Suburbia' by Tina Ashton]

"I commissioned Judith for a painting and she delivered my exact vision and in perfect time. As I am located in the U.S., commissioning an artist over country lines could be a bit uncertain and the project went swimmingly. Judith was quick to communicate and send photo proofs via email. She also helped coordinate a special delivery of the finished piece. I would recommend Judith for commissioned work any time, as she is very professional, has great style and an eye for detail."
Delaney, Colorado, USA 04/04/2008 ['Adrian's House' by Judith Webb]

"I have just taken delivery of my second painting from John Morris. In both cases the picture looked better "in the flesh" than they did on the site and so my expectations were well exceeded. John is very user friendly and happy to answer any question about the genesis of his work. Both of the pictires were despatched very promptly and in robust packaging so they arrived quickly and entirely safely. I would have no hesitation in recommending John's work and the quality of his delivery service. I am now looking forward to the next batch of his work to appear on Mini Gallery."
" Just to let you know that the presentation took place yesterday. We had had the painting mounted and it looked really great. My boss was absolutely "bowled" over (she and her family go dinghy sailing). She said she was overwhelmed. The painting captured the real experience. She loved the colours. She congratulated me on the choice and "for knowing her so well".
So you can imagine I felt pretty pleased. She was interested to know more about what you do and I said that I would send her your internet address. Thank you once again."
Wendy 29/03/2008 ['Red Sails' by Maureen Crofts]
"I now have in my possession three artworks by John Morris and two more are on the way. This artist's work improves my mood when it needs improving and helps me to focus on the beauty of life whether or not I need to focus... Thanks, John, you are brilliant."
"Took delivery of the painting on Tuesday after ordering at the weekend. We've already got it on the wall and we're really delighted with it. I love the work's 'surface tension': what it holds between the suggested depth of the colouring and the soft layering of the acrylic itself - something that can't be conveyed through the internet! The painting was expertly packaged and we very much appreciate your personal service ie. the gift card and the great communication. Many thanks again. All in all, a very happy customer."
Alan 14/03/2008 ['Elevation' by Tina Ashton]

The delivery services was brilliant, my order was placed a few days before the last Royal Mail post of the year (very late Christmas shopping!) and Laura made every effort to make sure it arrived on time and kept me up to date with it's progress. The canvas came gift wrapped and with a gift card included. All in all a very high quality canvas coupled with some of the best delivery service I have ever experienced! Will happily buy again."

Karen, London 22/01/2008 ['Misty Dawn' by Anne Twist]
"As I now have six pieces of your work I guess that must make me a fan by default if nothing else. I hope you don't mind me saying but I think I've had the pick of the bunch, I love them all. I'm also feeling quite poor at the moment so please don't paint anything good for a while... Only joking, I'm glad to hear I've spurred you on to create more. I will keep my eye your Mini Gallery for new creations."

It being my first web-based art purchase I was a little bit hesitant as I usually like to actually see the paintings I am going to purchase but the experience has been excellent: safe delivery within 48 hours, on-line payment, direct contact with the artist and a very impressed husband... I can definitely recommend buying through Mini Gallery."
A. Mattheus 08/01/2008

It looks bloody marvellous even if I do say so myself and I'm really pleased. I'm looking forward to my friends' comments over the festive period. The certification enclosed with my painting is very professional and a good touch too, especially if you become super famous."

"I commissioned 'Amazed IV' by Tina Ashton because I had seen 'Amazed III' on this website and wanted something similar for my newly decorated bedroom. Tina was really lovely to work with she made sure that she understood exactly what I wanted, even down to selecting the right frame for the painting. I had an idea in my head of what the finished picture would look like, and it was great to see how well the finished painting matched the one in my head. I would definitely recommend commissioning a painting to anyone as it really is an exciting process. I don't think I could have felt more pleased even if I'd painted it myself."

"The first piece of art by John Morris that I purchased was 'Satsuma'. This was in 2005. I chose this piece of art because I liked the colours: blue, green orange. Upon receiving this first piece of art I was in awe. 'How does he make this satsuma float above the surface?". Over a year later, with much inspection and admiration, I still can't work it out. As a result, I've purchased two new pieces which have recently arrived. 'Pears'. That is going to take some months of looking at before I can even begin to look at 'Still Life with Citrus Fruits'. Thank you, John, you art is adored up close from afar. The hard question now - which piece of beauty shall I choose next?"

Nicole Maury, USA 02/04/2006 [commission of diptych painting by Gaynor Henaghan]
"I have just purchased 2 beautiful 'field poppy' paintings from Thalia Stones, and as a Mini Gallery virgin I have to admit I was a bit nervous. However just a week after sending an enquiry to Thalia they have arrived, well packed and as good as I had expected. Now all I need is a big lottery win to buy up all the lovely paintings I keep spotting!"
Susannah Murphy 01/04/2006
"I wanted to let you know that we received our artwork ['Acumen', 'Moves, 'Warm Swirl' and four other commissions by Gaynor Henaghan] yesterday. Each piece was just wonderful and exactly what we were looking for. They are all now hanging on our walls and will be so great to have in place for our house warming party Saturday. You have truly been a pleasure to work with and I hope to do business with you again in the future. You have my highest recommendation. I know I will find more walls in our home as we live there longer that will need one of your pieces. Thank you again for working with us and within our tight timeline."
Ashley Clark, USA 23/03/2006
"Love the picture ['Bland' by Victoria Stanway]. Looks great up and am very pleased. Thank you."
Rick Hubbard 17/03/2006
"I received 'Retreat' [by Victoria Stanway] in perfect condition on Wednesday last week, but we put it up at the weekend. Had to wait until we were ready to hang it before taking it out of the very secure packaging - we've got 3 cats who can't be trusted! Have to say we absolutely love it! The colours and the depth are almost mesmerising. We decided to hang it in the bedroom so we can enjoy it more, it was fine in the hallway but we were walking past it all the time rather than appreciating it :-)"
Claire Ashley 13/03/2006
"The painting ['Promise' by Gaynor Henaghan] is even better in the 'flesh'."

"'Inauthentic' [self portrait by Victoria Stanway] is great. It is going to hang in a very light new bathroom on wall opposite the head end of the bath! When it returns from the framers that is. Trust this does not offend as it is a picture of you after all. Thanks, delivery and packaging were spot on."
Alec Turner 24/02/2006
"Many thanks to Ian Morris for his 'Venetian Light' - I purchased it on Monday and it arrived packed beautifully and in perfect condition on Thursday! The colours are so Venice and he's really captured the place's ethereal wateriness, if that makes sense. A reminder of many happy times there..."
Jo Heinrich 23/02/2006
"I have just received the wonderful Manhattan Nights [from Katy Bason-Healey]. The colours and textures are fantastic and it has brought a lovely warm feeling to our sitting room. The canvas already feels like an old friend. Even my children are a fan of yours and they normally hate everything I buy - thanks for giving me some street cred! I will definitely be purchasing more of your work very soon!"
Debbie Butler 20/02/2006

Ana, Edinburgh 09/02/2006

Nicky Powell 05/02/2006
"It arrived today!! I love it!! Must have more of your work!!"
Nancy McAllister 04/02/2006 ['Teignmouth' by Margaret Micklewright]
"I purchased John Morris's 'Four Fruits' a little while back. Now we and the painting are settled into the new home. It looks FANTASTIC! Cheers me every time I look at it. John couldn't have been more accomodating throughout the sale process too and the wrapping, well... Houdini-proof! Thanks John :o)"
"The painting ['In the Valley' by Anna Conversano] arrived safely and is already up on display. I am very pleased with it and love the bright colours.
"Thank you very much! The painting arrived this morning ['Quantock Hills' by Margaret Micklewright] and is absolutely delightful, much better than its online image. I'm really very grateful to you. I wish you every possible success with your forthcoming exhibitions."
Tim Nagley 19/01/2006
"The prints ['Call Me', 'OK Sweetie' and 'Precious' by Tina Ashton] arrived safely this afternoon. There was miles of bubble wrap... but your care really paid off!! "Wow wow wow, fantastic, couldn't be happier"... that's a quote from Shona. As you will gather we really like them. They really work on the box frame. Now contemplating something for my study!! Tonight is going to be focused on picture hanging. Thanks again for all your efforts in getting the prints to us so quickly (and of course for painting them!!)"
Terry & Shona Jones 16/01/2006
"The drawing 'Terriers' in Gilli Sand's gallery is of our Welsh and wire haired fox terriers. It is breathtaking. Never before have we seen a pen and ink drawing that could bring a beloved pet to life like this. Words cannot describe how much we love our picture."
Ty and Judy Cooke, Lubbock, Texas, USA 14/01/2006
"I just wanted to praise the work of Gilli Sands, I am in Florida and had her do a portrait of my dog, marvellous is not enough to sum up her work!"
Mrs S. Ryan, Florida, USA 13/01/2006

"Thanks for sending the painting ['Funky Love' by Judith Webb] so quickly. Me and my husband are over the moon with it, we used the last of our wedding money to purchase the painting which we will treasure, the only problem is, is deciding which room to put the painting in."
Jen, Swinton, Greater Manchester 14/09/2005

"Our painting [a commission piece similar to 'Red Hot Sunset' by Judith Webb] has just been delivered and it is absolutely stunning. The real thing is infinitely superior to the on-screen version - it is truly perfect. I can't tell you how happy we are with our beautiful sunset, once framed it will take pride of place in our dining room. A million thank you's, it has been a complete pleasure doing business with you."
Jan and Doug Sims, Avock, Ross-shire 30/08/2005

"Just to say Dave opened the painting yesterday and was absolutely thrilled. He has chosen the spot in the lounge where he plans to hang it and kept saying 'what a special present'. Thank you again for your very swift response and for all your help. His 40th birthday present is definitely one he'll remember."
Kirstin Stansfield 18/07/2005 ['Choices' was commissioned from Gaynor Henaghan]
"I have just received 'Checkers' from Pauline Reed. The whole process was very smooth with regular updates on the progress of my painting. The painting itself is excellent and compliments our living room perfectly. Would certainly consider buying another painting from this artist... the only downside is it means more decorating for me!!"
Colin Potter 27/04/2005
"John Morris! John Morris! What a talent! Absolutely top bloke with a sense of irony to well match mine! If only I was as artistic... John is a true gent. His work is so refreshing. The piece I bought, 'Catch Me If You Can' (Ha! You all SO missed out on that one) is so different to anything else I have. But that's the beauty of it. Its 'in your face' to the extent it dwarfs everything else, so no one will notice the changeover in my (small!) collection. Please look at John's work. You will feed his hungry offspring! You will save me money! If you buy John's work, there will be none left for me to buy! My hungry child will thank you! Oh, he does commissions... Sorry my son, it's back on the tinned beans... Joking aside art loving people, John is a top bloke, happy to help with colour schemes, frame ideas etc. You would be a very potty person to not look at John's work!"
Sarah Crossland 24/04/2005
"The painting arrived this morning Judie [Yorkshire Terriers Chloe and Sophie by
Judith Webb]. It's brilliant - Thank you!!!!! It's even better in the flesh."
"Just a quick note to say thank you for sending the painting ['Red Sky' by Hazel Semple] so quickly - it looks great."
Phil Iley, Bath, Somerset 13/01/2005
"I must say I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled across Dianne Heap and her wonderful greyhound paintings (being a greyhound lover). The quality is superb and so unusual I've even found myself buying country scenes. "When will it ever stop?" Thank you for superb service and friendly advice. What an easy way to buy quality art, well done Dianne, I look forward to buying more of your art."
Mel Baker 14/08/2004
"I came across Mini Gallery purely by chance looking for a painting for my father-in-law's 60th birthday. I still haven't found what I want for him but bought a lovely canvas for me instead!!!! Sent the cheque and I've just received a mail to say the painting ['Flame Red Hot Poppies' by Dianne Heap] is on its way. Excellent service - very user friendly site - wonderful! I am indeed a very happy shopper!"
Angela van Nuland 13/07/2004
"With such an eclectic range of paintings at Mini Gallery, and of such a high quality, it was quite a task (but an enjoyable one) choosing between several artists. After much deliberation I eventually decided on the work of Rosalind Roberts and in particular on one of her lovely Italian landscapes, 'A Quiet Place', which I admired so much for its serene beauty and masterly depth and luminosity. The painting arrived yesterday in perfect condition and in good time all the way from Milan to London. I was very impressed with the ease with which I was able to purchase it and the speed with which it was dispatched to me. The painting itself is a joy to behold, everything I hoped it would be and more. Wonderful. I am now keen to acquire a second painting by the same artist who I feel has an unique and quite exceptional talent. Well done Mini Gallery and many thanks to Rosalind."
G. Lester 25/05/2004
"The iris is breath-taking ['Iris I' by Hazel Semple]. Thank you! I picked it up from the post office today, in time to enjoy for Easter."

Stephan Schoettl, London 27/11/2003
"Hi Hazel, Gareth bought 'Ocean III' [by Hazel Semple] for me for my birthday. I instinctively enjoyed the vibrancy of the colours in this picture. It reminds me of the sea in Catalunya where we frequently go."
