       " I want to thank you again for the beautiful painting of my dog, Babe.    She is a Great Pyrenees; therefore totally white which would be a challenge to any painter.    I was so impressed with your use of subtle warm and cool colors to show depth and texture in her coat. So artfully done!    She has a soulful, kindly look about her and you also captured that quality!    Babe is going on her 8th year so if I lose her in the years to come, I will always have this wonderful reminder of her beauty and spirit. I am so happy with this lovely work!"

 "Thank you very much for the beautiful painting. Kirky’s eyes are so life-like. And you captured the expression on his face perfectly.   This is exactly how he looks when he knows that something is cooking on the stove but also wants to keep in sight in case there is something tasty in my hand and he tries to look in both directions.
George says thank you too. He is delighted with his birthday present.   We’ll get it framed this weekend according to your instructions."

Thank you again for the lovely gift.

"Several years ago I lost my precious cat, Muffy (short for Muffalumps).  She was 18 years old.  Her memory is kept alive by the painting that the artist, Tina Welter, did of her.  The painting is a perfect replica and keeps her alive in my memory.  It hangs in my bedroom and graces my life when I retire for the evening and wake in the morning."
