"I must tell you that the painting 'Little House in the Hills' looks beautiful over my fireplace and all my visitors comment on how outstanding it is. I feel as if I could walk right into it. Many thanks for the pleasure you have brought me. I will regularly visit your Internet site and when I am in Hay-on-Wye I will visit your gallery.
In the meantime please mail me the three prints listed on the order form."
"Of Apples and Serpents" (Amazon Reader Review) A reader from London and New York: I just couldn't put it down it was so vivid. This book just grabs you. From the first page to the last it is spectacular. The artist/author's drawings bring everything to life. I found myself waiting on Tom's every move. This first book by Mike Knight is a credit to him and his imagination. I look forward to his next publication, just like I look forward to each new picture.
".........I have just finished reading it and must tell you that it was enjoyable from the first page to the last. The characters were so well described that I'm sure I would recognize them if I met them. My only regret is that I wish I could have read the book while having a pint in the Old Black Lion.
Thank you for a wonderful experience and I wish you success with this book and future books."
"I am writing to tell how much I enjoyed reading your book, "Of Apples and Serpents". My husband and I were staying in the Wye Valley during May this year and we popped into The Craft Centre. We bought one of your lovely pictures and the book.
I found it a really gripping, exciting story. In fact I stayed up late two nights just to find out was going to happen! I am so glad I bought it! Thank you very much.
We enjoy looking at the picture of the bluebell wood also.
Good luck to you in the future.
"I have picked up the two commissions from my brother's house and I must say, I am chuffed to pieces with them! They are absolutely brilliant and now I am sure that my mum and dad will burst into tears! Thank you very much. I am sending a cheque today so hopefully you will receive it Tues or Wed. Thanks again, I am thrilled and can't wait to give them as presents."
....Thank you for the print of Hay Town Clock. It came so quickly and is truly more attractive 'in person' than the graphic on your web site. Please don't get me wrong -- your site is wonderful, but the colors are more vibrant and there is much more detail when looking at the print itself. Your framing is also very attractive. My wife was extremely pleased with it (we all are) and it went up on the wall within the half hour. You really have a wonderful talent. Oh, and the owl! I gave that to my daughter because she was so taken with it. We'll put it in a frame for her room. Where we now have the Hay clock tower hanging, there is room for another print of the same size. So we'll be browsing your site for a good companion to purchase -- I hope in the near future."
"With a few strokes of the brush he brings to life the white-washed walls of a cottage in a wooded valley and the distant misty hills, the stark reflection of a bare tree in an icy pond and entangled bracken round a crumbling wall."
"He creates a magical world with a touch of nostalgia, the countryside of our childhood."
"One can almost hear the sounds and smell the perfumes of the countryside."
"Peace and tranquillity - without doubt these are pictures one can live with and derive lasting pleasure."
