The Singing Butler is an oil-on-canvas painting made by Scottish artist Jack Vettriano in 1992. It sold at auction in 2004 for £744,800, which was the record at the time for any Scottish painting, and for any painting ever sold in Scotland. It depicts a couple dancing on the damp sand of a beach with grey skies above a low horizon. Two attendants to the left and right, a maid and a butler hold up umbrellas against the weather. The dancers wear evening dress: a dinner jacket, and a red ball gown; the woman appears to have bare feet. The butler is also formally dressed, while the maid wears a white apron and clutches her hat.
Do you accept the challenge? This pack includes the canvas, guide, paint and brushes, and, optionally a frame (DIY or an assembled one) - everything you need in order to paint and hang it on the wall.
You can also opt-out to receive it without the frame; you will still get some bolts and screws to be able to hang it.
Meet your new pastime for Sunday afternoons and free weekday evenings.
It also makes a wonderful gift for the artsy person in your life.
The kit comes wrapped in bubble bags and a tube to avoid creasing and safely dispatched with express courier. There's an even faster delivery option if you're in a rush, for a small fee.

How long can my personalization message be?
Hm. Our customizable products come with different designs and specifications. Therefore, the number of words and characters allowed differs for each. You should be able to find the word limit on the product description but if we forgot to put it there (nobody’s perfect!), kindly remind us with a quick note.
Do you have music boxes where I can pick a custom song?
Yes, we do. It comes in two sizes and, at the moment, one design. If you’d like to have a fully customized music box, with your own design, message, and song – just reach out to us. Yes, can be done!
Medium music box
Large music box
Do you provide gift wrapping service?
Not for all the products. We’re working on that. Our music boxes do come in a slick black gift box already!
Can I add a gift message or card?
No, not really. But we’re working on that.
How long will my order take to arrive?
You’ll love this answer: it depends.
Music boxes tend to take 3 weeks, including production time. Perhaps 4 if you have your song customized as well.
Painting by numbers kits take 2-3 weeks on average.
The other items – please allow a month. We’re working on improving delivery times, but Santa Claus takes a year so we’re a bit better than that. It will be worth it, we promise.
Can I opt for express delivery?
No, but we’re already offering the best, fastest, safest option available.
Who will deliver my parcel?
It depends on your country – but usually the national postal service (e.g. USPS in the US and Royal Mail in the UK).
What countries do you deliver to?
Most. If you’re not sure, contact us and we’ll tell you.
Can I replacement/get a refund?
Is the item damaged, lost in the mail, or severely delayed? Then yes.
Is your item not customizable but you want a refund for a different reason? Then you’re probably due a partial refund.
Is your item customized with your message but you’re just not happy with it? No, sorry, then probably not, unless you have a really good reason. Customizable items can’t be returned because no one else will have their anniversary on the same date as you – so we can’t resell it.
In either case, if there’s any problem with your order – reach out to us.
