Marna,
We received the delivery
and have hung the
pictures.  Tami and I are
blown away by not only
your artistry, but with
your thoughtfulness
too.  I didn't tell her
about the cards, and
when she saw them,
she had tears of joy.  
The pictures brighten up
our room.  I've been
longing to have a picture
or painting dedicated to
Martha for what she
means to us and to
cherish when she
passes on. Then Eddie
came into our lives and I
still haven't found what
I wanted.  I am so glad
you were at the Palo Alto
Art Fest and I showed
Tami your work and
picture of Hank this is
what I wanted for our
dogs.  You've captured
Eddie's innocent charm
and Martha's
playfulness.  From my
own heart, thank you.  
Ernie
Marna,
I LOVE it! It is
absolutely perfect! The
coloring is wonderful.

You have so captured
her eyes. It is like she
is watching me.

I think you may get
some more business
from this!
Suzanne
It is amazing, I
love it. Thank you
again. Always
worth the wait...
Anthony
Marna,
Just wanted to
thank you for a
wonderful painting
of Snoozie...she is
just soooo cute!  
Love her!

Marna,
My wife and I picked up
the painting of James
from my sister-in-law
tonight, and we
absolutely love it! Thank
you so much for your
hard work on this -- it is
absolutely perfect. We
also appreciate the
thoughtfulness of the
James cards you printed
for us. My wife has
wanted personalized
cards for a long time to
use for any occasion so
they are perfect.
We are very happy
with our painting and
would be glad to tell
the world.
Thanks again,
Jake, Betty & James

Marna,
The painting made it
safe and sound and
looks fantastic.  Right
now I have it hanging
in our bedroom!     
Everyone agreed that
you did an amazing
job with Beu’s eyes –
they are spot on.    
And the more I look
at the painting the
more I see little
things that you
caught….like the way
her hair on her ear
flips outward.   
Anyhow, it was a
great hit and
surprise.  Thank you
again for getting it
done and to my
parents’ house in
time for Christmas.

Dominic on Christmas
Dominic memorial pet portrait, in solid maple floating frame
We decided to frame
Dominic's painting in a
solid maple floating frame.  
The natural light maple
tones complement his fur,
and because his portrait is
only 8x8", the frame
finishes off the painting
nicely.
