"I gave the portrait to my husband this morning for his birthday -- I don't think he's ever liked a gift more! He also was super complimentary about the likeness and the style in which you paint. And he loved the background as well! So I just wanted to thank you again -- what you made is incredibly special, and you are amazingly talented. This painting truly means so much to us (we are crazy dog people, obviously). Take care, and good luck with all your artistic endeavors!"
