Wow that turned out really
nice! It's most likely going
on a yellow/goldenrod sort
of wall so the blues will be
perfect. (When it arrived) it
made me cry so I think that
means you did a wonderful
job. Thank you.

Marna!
You have captured the very essence of Polly. Her eyes are perfect!
My husband noted immediately that no matter where he was in the dining
room or living room, Polly was watching – NOT in a creepy way at all.  Her
portrait posture coincidentally mimics how Polly always kept watch over us
in order to not miss any possible fun adventure or a tidbit of food being
offered to her – she was forever the optimist.  I expected to feel sad
seeing the painting but the house now feels complete again with Polly
gracing our walls.
Thank you again Marna. Your artistic giftedness has brought Polly back to
me.  - Martine, British Columbia

Polly,  I feel like I met
you even though you had
already gone over the
rainbow bridge.  It was
an honor to paint you,
and I felt your spirit
guiding my brush. Thank
you for the happiness
you brought to the world!

Marna,
I have the portrait of
Gretchen and Jacob up
on the wall and just
love it.  You really
truly outdid yourself
with this one.  Their
expressions are
perfect, and you can
really see that these
two littermates are
best friends.  It's a
treasure.  

Thank you so very
much.  The final
product was well worth
the wait.

Hi Marna, I picked up

for the packet with

note cards. I will
definitely be showing
these to friends and
colleagues.
