Satisfaction guaranteed - a digital image will be sent for your feedback before the work is completed. I am happy to work with you and adjustments can be made, but there is no commitment to purchase if you are not happy with the results. I cannot always capture the spirit of a dog I have not met.
Feedback: December 2018 - OMG, Linda I LOVE it! I LOVVVEEEEE it so much! Oct 2017 -I got my portrait and I’m BEYOND excited!! You captured her perfectly!! I’ve been sending a text photo of it to all my friends and family and they’re amazed!! Thanks so so much!
March 2017 - Amazing, you somehow find their soul, not just their face.
July 2016 - My friend LOVES her retirement gift! Amazing work, Linda. Thank you!
Jan 2015 - What a beautiful piece of artwork you created for us. I love how realistic the eyes are!
Jan 2015 - Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the gorgeous painting of our sweet beloved Baxter. I love it – it is very well done and so true to the real dog. We have placed our new favorite artwork in a very special place in our home where we can enjoy it regularly.
Jun 2014 - Words cannot express how thrilled we are with the portrait of our "girls".
May 2014 - I love having Honey's portrait, every single person is struck by how it's *her*. I have the painting hanging in my bedroom, and every morning when I wake up I see her and smile. So thank you -- it is a gift that I will treasure for the rest of my life.
Nov 2013 - I would have never thought of framing Heidi the way you did. I'm glad I wasn't "in charge" of selecting the frame. We always thought she had a beautiful face. Now she looks majestic!
Nov 2013 - I was made the recent and proud owner of your beautiful painting of our beloved dog Josie, who passed away suddenly this past spring. Receiving your portrait of Josie was both unexpected and right on target. I know the photo that you worked from (it's a favorite of mine), but your painting has captured something of the real "Josie-ness" that a photograph just isn't capable of, and I thank you.
