“I bought one of Daniels pieces, a triptych as part of my wifes 50th Birthday present. My wife was blown away by the piece, she absolutely loves it. It was quite a risk to buy a piece of art for someone else, but quality and talent will always shine through. More than happy with the purchase.”

“Having known Dan for around 14 years and admired his work adorning his home, I was delighted he decided to once again pick his brushes up and put paint to canvas.
As my husband said earlier, we jumped at the chance to ask for a commission…for us, it’s personal, but Dan has captured what we wished for and more. His description of our amazing painting you can read on his blog, it blew us away.
It dominates our sittingroom and , like Brinny, I gaze at it..more than trice a day…it’s beautiful, thank you Dan.X”
— Fi Wilson Brinton – (Private Commission)

“Dan is an outstanding artist who really captured the essence of what we were looking for in our commissioned painting for 10 years together 7 years married – the painting has pride of place in the front room on the chimney breast…I gaze at it every day which makes me smile :-)”
