Sadie and Maggie memorial cat portrait by Marna Schindler, from Albuquerque, New Mexico
We are overjoyed with
our pictures of Sadie &
Maggie so lovingly
painted by Marna –
especially the painting
with the two of them
and the stars – it is a
daily reminder that they
are looking down on us
from the rainbow
bridge.  Just looking at
these pictures brings a
smile to my face and
brings back the 16 years
of love and fun with
those furry babies in our

The picture of Sadie
alone hangs in our
bedroom with the Lance
Green ‘Maggie’ picture,
and the picture of the
two of them is in our
study area off the
kitchen, which is a highly
trafficked area.  It
enjoys a spot right next
to a Mutts print…

Hi Marna -

Just wanted to again say
how much we love the
painting of Kirby. I already
have a coworker who was
requesting your contact info
and I posted to the
keeshond group I'm part of
on Facebook to show your
work as well, already have a
few people asking for
contact info.  Just wanted to
let you know I'm hopefully
going to get a few leads for
you as we feel so blessed to
have worked with you.  Our
Kirby picture is the best
addition to the house since
we got him 3 years ago!!!

Happy holidays!!!

Marna: the painting of
our sweet Analaa

eyes. Thank you so
much . . . you so caught
the essence of her
personality. Thank you

I returned home safely
and just completed
Christmas with my
family. Katie and I gave
my sister Michele her
painting of Pella and she
cried as soon as she
saw her face. She
recognized her right
away and said "that's
my stinky!!" Your
painting is a perfect
representation of her
and is the talk of the
evening. I thank you
from the bottom of my
heart for making this
Christmas surprise come
~ Christy

Pella also loved the
Pella with her painting!
