Designers at specialist portrait painting company Sporting Canvas, based in Mirfield, have produced oil paintings of Donny, which the man himself has signed.

And the paintings are now on sale to fans around the world.

Director John Stenson said: “Donny is a huge international star with a fabulous career spanning many decades. He is a beacon of professionalism and one of the few celebrities who embodies many of the values to which we all aspire.

“Donny’s star continues to shine brightly with his win on Dancing With The Stars in the United States and his Vegas show with Marie is fabulously successful.”

Sporting Canvas specialises in limited edition oil paintings including images of celebrities and sports stars such as Lewis Hamilton, motorcyclist Valentino Rossi and England footballer Wayne Rooney.

The company also produces oil paint copies of famous art works.

Mr Stenson added: “I think most of these paintings will be bought by fans – but we’re already getting a lot of interest from collectors.”
