Perhaps this is the busiest mirror I have ever made. A client wanted a mirror for a friend who loved her cottage, her dog and her two cats. I managed to get everything into the composition and the recipient loved it.
I made another cottage mirror once for a man who wanted me to show his dead dogs in the composition so I had them appear as angels hovering over the two friends as they sat in their Adirondack chairs. Again the chairs were very specific as were the types of dogs. The mirror became a focal point in their cottage decorating scheme I was told.
