Hi Stella, since purchased both paintings 'Under Cinnamon Skies' & Burnished Reflections', both now hanging in lounge. Very pleased with them. Thank you
I am delighted with the picture and attach pix of it in place. As a journalist I remember the phrase used by an old printing lecturer: the judicial use of white space is the essence of good typography. I am not sure if the same principle applies to the display of art work but I hope that you agree that the painting sits well on an uncluttered wall. I was first drawn to the painting by the colours, which coincidentally go well in my kitchen diner with the burgundy units, and it makes an ideal focul point in the dining area. Many thanks again, I can only envy your skill, regards, Chas, Kent, 6/10/08
The picture is simply awesome....love it. (commissioned painting "Contemplation") Sunil, Middlesex, 24/9/08
Our painting Burnished Reflections II arrived safe and sound this morning. It is already hanging on our wall and looks wonderful - the colours are beautiful.

Moira and I are the owners of an origional and exellent painting at a very reasonable price. Thanks again, Best wishes

It looks absolutely stunning and I know she is over the moon with it. Many thanks again, Kind regards,"

We love the painting and have had lots of compliments.
Best regards - Helen, Middlesex
"I have bought many paintings through Mini Gallery as I love the fact that I am dealing direct with the artists, all of whom have been very helpful and friendly, the paintings are wonderful and the prices are very reasonable! The website itself is so easy to use and very addictive. I have recently introduced my mum to Mini Gallery (she bought 'Tranquil Waters II' by Stella Dunkley) It was her first experience of internet shopping and she loved it.
I also bought two of Stella Dunkley's pieces myself; 'Rivers Edge' and 'Ciel D'or V' - they were both fantastic and I couldn't decide between them so one was for a present and one was for me! Once I've cleared a little more space on my walls, and replenished my bank account, I'll be back."
Sarah, Cambridge 14/10/2005
Received the painting in one piece well 3 pieces actually, thanks once again. beautiful painting (Sea Mist) ATB
Steve, Coventry 28/07/2005
Just to let you know that the painting (The Tempest) arrived safely yesterday and
that i am very pleased with it. Thanks. Nice work!
I wish there had been more room on the Feedback Forum to say more about this beautiful painting (Ciel D'or) It arrived safe and sound at 0930 today. It is wonderful! The colours are so vibrant, it brings a real feeling of warmth and sunshine to our lounge. This painting is worth far more to me than I paid for it. We have searched everywhere for months for an oil and nothing we saw would have worked. We only moved to this bungalow six month ago and had it renovated, the rooms are decorated in a Scandinavian style. Your painting goes perfectly. I know it will bring many compliments over the years and I will give your name so hopefully you will have some new clients. Many thanks and regards, Sue, 10/06/2005
