Some words of praise

Eric,
Thank you so much for the wonderful portrait of my dog Buddy. I must say it was done with such detail that is like looking at him face to face. As with many dog owners, these pets become our children and we cherish and protect them as we would any family member. I did not expect such a great birthday and life time gift. Again thank-you. In the future we may have you do another portrait of our dog Logan, he is a 7 month old Beagle.

Hi Eric -
I received it today - it's just awesome! Again, thanks so much for your work and capturing my best friend. I have lots of "friends in dogs" so maybe they will also want a portrait of their dogs. Everyone that saw the photo of the portrait and knows Kolby, sez "he really captured her expression". Yes, it will be easy to find a frame so I'm on the hunt now.
Thanks, Marsha Baker

Eric, the portrait you did of Allie was incredible! Allie was my wife's baby before we had any children and when I presented her with the portrait Christmas morning, we both broke down in tears. It's the best gift I have ever given her!
Thanks.

Hi Eric,
I did receive the portrait; it looks absolutely beautiful! It arrived within a couple of days after you shipped it, impeccably, no problems whatsoever. I can't wait to give it to Natalie next week, it's been so hard holding onto it. I know she will be so thrilled and very touched - it's really incredible!
All the best, Ellie

I love Jinks' portrait. Every day it's a wonderful reminder of what a sweet little guy he was. I have it in a smooth, heavy gold frame that sets it off beautifully. Everyone who sees it is impressed by how you are able to capture the spark of life in two dimensions. Judy Menown

Hi Eric. I just picked up the portrait today and it is amazing. It's so beautiful I hardly have the words. My mom will cry when she sees it, I'm sure. Thank you so much, this is going to be a wonderful Christmas present for an elderly lady who is missing her friends very much.
Thank you so much again! Alyson

Hi Eric,
Just to let you know that I received the portrait about an hour ago. I gave it to my husband since it was an anniversary/birthday gift. I couldn't wait. The suspense was driving me crazy. I have to say he was speechless. He really loves it, and can't believe how life like it looks. It brought tears to both of us. Thanks once again, and for returning the photos.

Eric, I have received the portrait and I love it! I am taking it in this evening to have it framed. Great choices on the matting too. Thank you so much. I'll be in touch, probably next year. We have 2 Dachshunds that I'd like done but I've got to dig through my pics and fine a good one, or else I'll take more.
Thanks again, happy holidays.

Eric, All I can say is WoW! You are incredibly talented. Please provide directions on the best way to keep it looking good for as long as possible and framing advice. Honestly Eric, it is the best portrait I have ever seen. She loved it of course and very soon you will be hearing from me to do another!
Looking forward to your next great work of art! Jordan Messer

Eric - He thought it was great and that you did a great job as an artist. We would certainly consider you in the future for any commissions of our animals. I would be happy to be listed as a reference if you would like. J. Martin

Eric,
I just wanted to say again how thrilled I am with Mandy's portrait. I am just so amazed with your talent. My 40th birthday is a couple weeks away and I have to say this is the best birthday gift I have ever received. It is a comfort to know after Mandy is gone I will have such a beautiful reminder that will keep her close in my heart. Thank you again.

Eric, Since Christmas I've been meaning to write you. I gave my husband the portrait you did of Lykos, and he immediately became overwhelmed with emotion. He is so impressed with the detail and the likeness of the portrait to Lykos. I don't think I'll ever be able to top this gift! Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do!
Sincerely, Lisa

Eric, this portrait of Guieseppe is so beautiful that I could cry if it wasn't for being at work. You captured the beloved bump in his snout and the velvety texture of his ears and it just is so lovely. I am thrilled with it. Thrilled. I could never thank you enough for the gift of such a beautiful painting. Thank you! It is so lovely .... I'm so happy, Eric. You are very gifted. You captured him perfectly.
Emily

Eric, You should have been there when Carla opened Ozzie. Her eyes just about bugged out of her head, and she just started bawling, and she just couldn't get over what an exact likeness you got of him. You scored BIG POINTS, Eric!!!!
Connie

Eric,
Thought you would like to know, Khara received her portrait and loves it!! I told her to open it early as she had a tough week.Thanks so much for your efforts and help!
Sincerely, Teague

Hello Eric,
The portrait was just delivered to my door. I must say, it is simply stunning. Looking at it made me want to smile and cry at the same time. It is so beautiful. You truly captured the love I have for Rose and her love for me. She looks so beautiful in the portrait it made me start to cry. Thanks to the gorgeous portrait, in some way, I feel as if I have a portion of my sweet girl back in my home with me. I am also thrilled with your portrayal of me. You created a truly remarkable piece of art that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I am grateful to you for working with me to create an image that previously existed only in my heart. If ever someone is interested in commissioning a portrait from you, but wants a reference first, please feel free to have them contact me. I will gladly tell them of the beauty of your work and the patience, kindness, and guidance you offer while taking a portrait from idea to reality.
You are a remarkable artist, and I hope to be able to work with you again someday.
Sincerely,
Mara Chontos-Gilchrist
