Commissioned painting

Bert was commissioned to paint this photograph of a co-workers parents – the Prendergast’s. The image is from a holiday photo taken whilst in Canada. It was quite a difficult painting as to do as the scale was too small. It does however feature an incredibly beautiful and stunning depiction of mountains and an icy lake in the background.

This is the only painting Bert Ernie has ever been paid for.
