We were finally able to
present your art work

was so moved by it,
that we needed to take
a time out for her to
compose herself.

On behalf of CCARES,
thank you for all you
did on our behalf.

Mockup I created before
BARKing on Mr. W's
painting (showing main
reference photo we chose,
as well as a suggested
background). Jim (Mr. W's
dad) considered several
different photos, layouts,
and backgrounds before
choosing this one!
The primary RUFFerence
photo of Mr. W that we
decided to use for his
portrait. (As you'll see on
the left, we added a new
background featuring
lavender, blue, and bright
orange flowers to give Mr.
W in his painting a fun and
flowery place to romp!

"This is the second
painting Marna has
done for me. This time,
however, it was for my
husband who lost his
sweet, Baby. It was a
surprise gift to him. I
supplied Marna with
several photos so she
could get a good feel
for Baby and her
expressions. Well, she
hit it spot on and made
a grown man cry! He
was blown away. Thank
you so much, Marna!
You really know how to
capture the soul in our
pets' eyes."

it is just perfect! The
detail is amazing....the
pool, view, whiskers
and two squared off
canines, all so much
like the little Corkster
himself! Love it love it
and the cards were a
wonderful surprise!
Thank you! The girls
will sign one of the
cards and say it was
chosen as looks so
much like Corky, she
won't have a clue
...then voila the
painting!! Can't wait,
she is going to love it I
have no doubt.

Thx again Marna.
We got the portrait
yesterday and we
absolutely love it!  My
parents couldn’t believe
how much it looked like
her.  The cards and the
certificate were an added
bonus.  Thank you again
for everything!

Hi Marna-
My mother absolutely
LOVED the painting. Both
her and my father
thought that you
captured Milly's
personality perfectly and
I believe they already
have it hanging up in
their Family Room. I
believe that she adores
her Milly painting as much
as I love my Max painting
(it's the screensaver on
my phone and my
computer, as well as
hanging in our kitchen).

Thank you, again, for
sharing your incredible

the note to us, the
details in everything
you did are simply
amazing!!  We are
absolutely thrilled!!!

Mom will break down in
tears of joy.   We know

hardly wait to give it to

Your talent is truly
