Comments from Happy Clients:

Skeeter - Golden Retriever, 10x8 Watercolor

I wanted to let you know that my wife loved the watercolor you did of our dog Skeeter. Needless to say there weren't many dry eyes when she opened her gift Christmas Day. She still tears up when she looks at it. You did a wonderful job of capturing her beauty. Thanks so very much! ~Don

Joshua - Mixed, 10x8 oil on panel
"A year ago I lost my dog after 17 1/2 years and I wanted a portrait to memorialize him. I recently found Janet and asked her to do the portrait for me. I want everyone to know that she did an absolutely wonderful portrait of my dog... and it is such a wonderful and happy likeness of him that my husband and I find joy in it every day... It allows us to remember him with such fondness and no sadness and that is a perfect gift as far as we are concerned. Words cannot express our gratitude Janet but we still want to say a great big "Thank You" from the bottom of our hearts and know that we will forever be grateful to you for your effort." ~ Joyce Bates‎
