“People keep telling us that they saw our Testimonials for an Oil Portrait Artistportrait. They say it is so ‘us’. They say it captures the real ‘us’. We really enjoy it. We love it.”—Margaret Word Burnside

Dear Jessica,
This is just a note to tell you how much we enjoy your portrait of our twin granddaughters, Crystal & Madison.
It is such a classic, I think it could hang in anyone’s home…like a Rembrandt
or a Gainsborough…and not just on the wall of doting grandparents, like us. You have captured their spirit as well as their beauty. To say you have a great gift would do you a disservice…because you have a finely tuned skill that is more than a gift. We shall treasure this work forever.
I know our daughter (their mother) is going to talk to you about a duplicate when her house is finished. She knows that one day each girl will want to have the picture in her own home and there are two of them.
Thank you for your work and for your sweet friendship.
May you have great success!
Sincerely,
(grandmother)

“It is truly a masterpiece. It takes my breath away. When people even just look at the photo of it they go ‘whewww’.
“Anybody who gets painted by you is so lucky.”—her mother

“It is so life-like. She is away at school and I miss her, but I can still look at her and see her life and it feels like I still have her with me. It just seems so natural to look over at it and say, ‘What’s happening?’ When I talk to her on the phone and look over at the portrait I feel she is really with me. Having her portrait kind of makes up a little for not having her here with me every day.
“You were wonderful to deal with. You had creative ideas on how to show her in a portrait, to capture her likeness. In the photo session you knew how to get her relaxed. You went the extra mile to create something really incredible. “

“You’ve really captured her. Her eyes. You’ve really got them. I love it!”—her mother
