The painting is beautiful! Thank you so much! We love it and can't wait to have it framed and hanging in Gavin's room! Cheers, Tracy


"WOW! What a lovely surprise it was to come home to a beautifully appointed breakfast room. Your stenciling just MADE the room. You did a fabulous job. Creating images of our favorite animals as animal crackers while giving them a "deeper" symbolic meaning added so much. What an artist you are! Best to you." Glenda Crout


"Carol, Im EXTREMELY pleased with the most recent photo you re-did for us. I so much appreciate your removing the stranger from the photo of Bette receiving her Real Estate award and rebuilding the background so convincingly. Bette is also extremely pleased with it! I really appreciate the detail orientation and artistry with which you always treat our photos. Otto Harrison, New Braunfels, TX.


"Thanks so much for the fabulous work!  The new illustration and redesign of our CD cover is perfect.  Exactly what I requested, completed with expertise beyond what I had a right to expect.  I'm grateful for all your efforts to enhance the project."
Keith Luis, aka Dr. Louie


"Carol, Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did (photo restoration).  You added joy to our Christmas!"
Otto Harrison, New Braunfels, TX


"Thank you, Carol, for your masterful portrait of Firskey.  It will make my loss of him easier.  From this excellent likeness it's easy to tell that you studied with (world-renowned Austin artist and sculptor) Charles Umlauf."
Ralph Cinque, DC


"What a lovely final product!!!  I stopped by the St. David's waiting
room this morning, and was so pleased with the mural that you completed.  It looks fantastic!

You really managed to tie everything in the lobby space together with your chosen colors, and it came together very nicely. And the thing that I was the most pleasantly surprised by was the way you were able to make the mountain scene in the wall mounted aquarium disappear.  It wasn't appropriate for the application.  We wouldn't have chosen that.  What a feat!   Everything looks great - I couldn't be more pleased!"

"Thank you once again for your fine work on my grandmother's picture. My mother was astonished with the restoration and said that 'it looks just like it did before the storm damaged it in 1932.' She is really delighted with it, and we hung it in the most prominent place in her den. It was a great. Mother's Day present for her. After my relatives see the photo, you may get requests to produce additional copies. I wrote down your contact information for Mother to give them".

"My book, Texas Rangers, for which you scanned and improved the images, is selling well -- all over the world.  Thanks so much."
