Just a quick note to say that we love the portrait of Bonnie that you did for us, it is really very lovely. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job and for capturing her personality correctly, as it never shows in photos.

Owner's Comments
Bette, your attention to detail is absolutely incredible, and removing the grey from her face has given back that 'youthful appearance' of her past I was exactly looking for.
You've truly captured Boof's personality, and thanks for taking the time to listen and for being so helpful from start to completion in creating exactly what I was looking for.
I'm truly overwhelmed, and thank you, you've immortalised wonderful and priceless memories that will last forever. Glen.

Hi Bette, I have just gotten home from a show tonight and was delighted to find your e-mail. I can tell you that when I first laid eyes on this piece, it was nothing short of incredible.
You have captured Dooley perfectly and this absolutely captures every essence of him. The expression, the colours, the colour of his eyes .... everything is amazing. I just get a rush of pride when I look at it. Thanks so much ... it is perfect! I can't wait to see it framed and on the wall.
It is the most sensational portrait I have ever seen! It just gave me shudders when I saw it. It is so full of expression. One thousand thank you's again. I absolutely LOVE it! I hope you use it to show other people as I think it is inspiring. I look forward to hearing from you.
Cheers, Janelle.
PS: Forgot to add that I LOVE the colour of the background. It shows him off beautifully. You are a very talented lady!

This portrait was commissioned as a gift for our daughter for her 21st birthday. She loved it and was in tears at seeing it.
Everybody we showed it to thought the same, and it was so lifelike.
