Hiya Tony,
The painting was delivered yesterday as you promised and its amazing.
After me looking at literally hundreds of paintings and narrowing them
down to 12 that I thought Terry would like, you should give yourself a
pat on the back, for the one he liked best was yours!!
I was dying to open it all day yesterday and had to wait for him to come
home from work. He is absolutely delighted with it. Its looks fantastic,
the colours are so deep..
Thank you for the careful packaging and thank you again for making one
of the best Xmas presents ever!
Have a lovely day

Dear Tony
I would like to say a big (belated) thank you for the message you wrote on the back of the painting we bought for as a wedding gift for our friends (Abstract #1).

Hi Tony,
Just to let you know the painting arrived safely and is now hanging on our sitting room wall.  It is fantastic and neither of us can stop looking.  It captures your eye when you least expect and looks great from any angle.  Lots of positive comments from friends.  I think they are all green with envy!!
Many thanks again for everything and I am sure we will "be back" -  in the words of the great man himself.

Hi Tony,
Many thanks.
The painting is fabulous.  I was finally allowed to open it this morning although I severely underestimated the time it would take to get through the expert packaging...
Am really delighted with it..... my only dilemma now is to decide where to hang it.
Am sure you'll be hearing from me again...
Thanks again for all your help.
Best Wishes

Hi Tony
It looks fantastic on a plain cream wall - and is now the main focal point of our room -we are extremely thrilled with it.
My ten year old son took one look at it and said " it's a tribeswoman
walking in the desert wearing a white robe, carrying a staff with a baby onher hip"- he didn't know the title or subject matter when he said that - isn't that lovely?
Thanks again Tony.
From Sarah Moynihan,
I had been looking for a while for a wedding present for my best friend when I came upon this site.  After several hours of happy browsing, I came across the perfect painting - End of Day by Tony Broadbent.  
I liked it so much that I bought another one, Easing Down, for me!  Tony couldn't have been more helpful, he even personally delivered End of Day to my friend's house the day before her wedding.  
I have been singing the praises of this site to everyone I know, and while I still have space on my walls, I'll be back!
( Thankyou Sarah, it was a pleasure to meet you )
Hi Tony
Many thanks for trying your best with delivery, the post office tried to deliver 8.30am Friday! We collected the picture this morning and all is ok.
We are delighted with the art work so all has ended well - the wonders of perseverance!
I've attached some photos "in situ"  - the picture
has been placed at the top of the stairs, it looks good as you come in
through the front door! Feel free to use the photos.
Hi Tony,
We bought one of your tryptichs from you in Addingham a few months ago and have been so pleased with it and had so many complements about it in our new house that we decided to pay a visit to Artolicana today. Straight away we saw the perfect painting to complement it and immediately purchased 'departure'.
Can't wait to get back to Dudley to put it up on the opposite wall!
Hope to see you again at a future exhibition when we are visiting my parents in Ilkley.
Many Thanks
Paul and Vicky
'Small Organic' arrived safely today. My wife, Carol, waited patiently for me to arrive home from work for the unveiling. I can say we are extremely pleased with the piece and are now finalising where to position it in our home.
I am now looking forward to receiving the remaining works and also establishing the best way to progress on the commission......

Reply, I know... but you get the general semblance of what it is and if you like that, then the reality is even better, trust me. I will always refund if you do not like it for any reason. I am that confident.

Hi Tony
We received the painting yesterday and are really pleased with it.  It looks fantastic the colours are perfect.
Thank you so much.
Kind regards

Hello Tony,
Thanks for the email.
We enjoyed your show immensely. If we're in Ilkley on the 19th we'll pop along to Addingham.
Your website, like your exhibition is inspiring.
I've started a few paintings but it'll be a while before they meet the
outside world.  I'll let you know when I've "finished" something and request your expert eye if I may.
All the best,
Hilary & Simon
"New Horizons" has arrived safely.  
What can we say, it is fantastic.
Please find attached image of "New Horizons" in pride of place in our Lounge.
We are over the moon and the new piece really sets the room off.  We may even have to re-position "Small Square Organics" to get the balance in the room right.
Once again many thanks.  We will certainly look after this one.
Please feel free to use any of our comments for your web site.

Hi, All, previous and potential customers, my regulars........
Sincerely......... Thanks for all your comments, it is a pleasure to see my work ' housed' and appreciated. :) Sorry for not keeping in touch but I'm notoriously bad at maintaining contact, it's nothing personal just a very bad business practice. 
Tony :)
