Hey Jane,
You've done it again!!!!!! Wow. You have captured Sebastien to a tee. Janice just forwarded the photo of the piece and it is spectacular. I can't believe how special it is. She mentioned you might be coming out this way. Please I would love to meet you and express what great joy and pleasure you have given me with these portraits. Thanks again.

You are so talented."

"On a whim I decided to see if Escher made it on to your website and, like a proud mother, beamed when I saw his portrait leading the group on the Pet Portrait page! I love the oil of Escher – look at it every day. Can’t wait to have a reason to get the other dogs done."

"Lux, Presto, and Chico"
We LOVE the portrait! I knew that you were the right artist to do this for us. It really captured their individual spirits and we love how you did the background with the rug, etc. Thank you, it is awesome-- we are very happy!!" - Jeff F. Moss Beach, Calif.


"Jake, Jasmine and Scratch"
"Dear Jane, Thank you so much for the truly extraordinary pastel painting of Jake Jasmine & Scratch! You have managed to reproduce their faces and expressions in a work of art that Hugh and I will treasure forever. Everyone who has seen the painting has commented on how accurate the likeness is and how deftly you have captured the dogs' personalities and moods. We are thrilled, also, with the stunning, soft-hued palette you chose and the imagination and skill you put into capturing incidental details: dog collars and licenses, the adorable white patch on Scratch's chest, plants and flowers in our yard, the ochre color of our front steps, the black railing on our porch, and so on. These are the marks of a truly accomplished artist! Thank you for all the care you put into the execution of our painting. Warmest regards." - Noah G. Berkeley, Calif.

Oberlin, Ohio

I am also honored that you put her picture on your website homepage!!! Thanks again." - Audrey R. Berkeley, Calif.

"Elliott and Dot"
"I just wanted to say thank you again for creating such a special gift. The portrait is a beautiful piece of art that captures Elliott and Dot perfectly.

Thank you again for your time and creation and I look forward to perhaps another piece." - Rick B. San Francisco, Calif.
