Toots…

Please allow Gadora a few toots of her own horn via a compilation of some of the things YOU HAVE been kind enough to say… it was my Mama who said, “Honey, if you don’t toot your own horn, who else will?”

CRACKLE COFFEE TABLE ~ 12.22.09
I love this crackle table. The treatment gives it a light, French country look. You completely erased all traces of the bulky original. well done.

M CHAN of HOLLYWOOD HILLS ~ 12.16.09
Just wanted to give you an update. Nana LOVED the portrait, and so did Gramps. Though I think M Chan was a little confused on who the lookalike was—he sniffed and stared at the frame. ;p Also, Ali engraved the frame with ‘M Chan loves Nana.’ Thank you sooo much!!!”

WATERCOLOR RACECAR ~ 11.19.09
From Gadora’s cuz: “The painting was amazing and so was the story!!!! We love you and can’t thank you enough… Casey told me it is the best gift he has ever received and he has yet to find its permanent place!!! It has been moved from room to where he thinks it will be viewed the most!!! Lol!!!”

BOSLEY ~ 10.26.09
Why did you have to make me cry??? ;o)
Thank you so much again….it pleases me to no end that just a few photos of my boy could inspire words like that. I really wish you could have met him….it seems crazy you didn’t because you captured his spirit and soul perfectly. He was beyond patient with me and the silly things I put on him….but it was that stoic bravery and peacefulness that you captured in the portrait that will remain with me forever.
You really have made one of the most difficult times in my life a little better. I’m forever grateful.
Best, Emily

ALLI & SCOUT ~ 10.15.09
Just got my water color of Alli and Scout BEFORE they started giving each other the “stink-eye” and not getting along! I love it, love it, love it, and Lori framed it beautifully for me!! I’m taking it to work to show everyone, but bringing it back home so I can see it all the time! Thanks for such good work and the added warmth of the fire!!

SONNY & ROSIE ~ 10.14.09
“My father got the picture today — just called — and absolutely LOVES IT!!!! He wants to blow it up big and put at the end of the hall in his office! He couldn’t be happier or have gotten a better gift! Thank you again — and again, it was so nice working with you.” Thank YOU Laura. Much.

HERSHEY ~ 09.01.09
I am Jessica’s husband. Just wanted to say thanks as well. You did a great job on painting Hershey’s portrait. The eyes are spot on. She always had very expressive eyes. She was a great dog and we miss her a lot. Thanks again,

Imagine my surprise to receive such an amazing gift for my birthday! Thank you SO much for the beautiful portrait of my baby boy Rolo. He is a teeny bundle of joy in my life each and every day and you caught him exactly as I see him….perfect. I’m thrilled to see he touched your life as well.
Many blessings and continued success!!!

HEN PARTY ~ 04.30.09
I love my original watercolor! It’s a darling piece of work. Audrey says it’s as if the chickens are looking right out at her, bobbing their heads. This is a worthy line of artistry – meaningful and unique. Thank you!
Joan

CRACKLE FINISH ~ 03.30.09
WOW! Gadora does it again. Crackle is totally not my thing, but these look amazing. I would never have seen such potential in the ho-hum pine tables, but they are so glam now. NICELY DONE!
