In memory of Bentley Pet Portrait
Marna, I love all of the
expressions you
captured on all three
pets. Luke has Joy-cat
on his wall, and Elli has
Coco on hers.  I hung
Bentley right over my
night stand so he is the
first thing I will see
when I get up and the
last thing at night when
I go to bed.  They are
amazing!  I am so
thrilled with the results,
and the frames are a
great addition. Merry
Christmas!  Audrey K,
Knoxville, TN
It is so perfect, I can't
believe it! I cannot take
my eyes off of it.  You
REALLY captured his
expression. So much so
that it has me crying.  
Thank you so much, it
is beautiful!   Audrey K,
Knoxville, TN
When I wake up and walk
out of our bedroom I get
to see the beautiful
portraits you did for us.  
They will be cherished
always.  You really
captured all that we were
looking for.  
Thanks again!

Marna, I just want you
to know how touched I
am by your work and
integrity.  You have
created the most
meaningful piece of art
for me and my family
that surpasses my
expectations.  You
have made my furry
kids larger than life and
I am forever grateful
for your time and
talent.  Your kind spirit,
big heart and caring
soul comes through in
all you do! I wish you
continued success and
happiness always.  
Again, thank you~ Lisa
Last night we held a
little celebration and
(finally ;-D) hung up the
three paintings. We
really love them,
including all of your
special touches—the
hearts, ribbons and your
signature on the back
and your notes about
taking care of them. The
entire process is truly a
work of art, which we
very much appreciate.  I
can’t tell you how much
joy we get seeing them
in our entryway every
time we pass by.
Best,

Bev and Keith
Hi, everyone. I'm
emailing you all the
paintings I
commissioned from
Marna Schilndler. She's a
local artist whom I met
several years ago at The
La Jolla Art Festival.
Marna's work is both
creative and realistic. I
must say, she has now
painted four "pet
portraits" for me, and I
haver been disappointed.
So I'm sharing my
passion with those I
cherish. Just a little piece
of me I felt like sharing.
Hope you enjoy them.
-Brightest Blessing,
Deborah

furry family members

Hi Marna,
I love it, it is
definitely our boy!

Thanks,
Chris and Tim
Hi Marna,
The paintings of
Noah, Roxy and
Johnny are
beautiful.  I loved the
cards as well. I also
appreciate your
donation to the fund
raiser.  It was our
best year ever.  
Amy
It's so much more
than I hoped for.
Thank you so much!
Mary was so excited.
She absolutely loves
it. It hangs upstairs
right outside her
bedroom.
Leandra
Marna,
I just opened your
website and there
was our beloved
Sammy.  It brought
tears to our eyes.  It
is just beautiful.  We
told Sammy she is a
"Star".  I don't have
anymore words to
describe the depth of
emotion that it
brings to me.  Thank
you.  
Louise and Peggy
and most of all
Samantha.  
We love it and can't
wait to put it on our
wall. Very excited.
Especially because
our kitchen is getting
re-done starting next
week and will look
very nice on the new
exterior wall of the
kitchen. I will have to
take a picture of all
the mug shots and
send it to you. I have
been striving to be
the customer that
has the most orders
from you. I hope I
have accomplished
"most paintings
purchased" hahaaa!
Jodi
Hope loves her
painting of Peanut!!
She was so excited
and very happy with
the results! We are
so happy with
Peanut's painting as
well as all of the
others. They are a
great collection for
us, as we definitely
love our pets! Thank
you for capturing
another one of our
family members, her
eyes are truly
spectacular!  She is
such a sweet dog,
and you can feel that
looking at her
painting, which is
amazing! Thank you!
Audrey
Hi Marna,
I think the softening
looks amazing!  
Thank you so much
for the extra effort.  I
couldn't put my finger
on what was missing,
but your expert eye
and hand finished it
off beautifully.
I love it.  And I think I
agree that it looks
best without the
frame.
It's beautiful, and a
fitting tribute to my
special girl.
Thank you so much.
