“Giva, thank you so much for painting my sweet girl, Macy.
I adopted her from a Cocker Spaniel rescue agency, and she was old and ill when I got her. But with lots and lots of TLC and good veterinary care, she blossomed and lived a full, happy
and healthy life for the next three years. She and I had a deep and special bond, and it makes my heart sing to look at the portrait you painted of her. You captured the essence of her
precious soul, and I am very grateful. She now lives on not just in my heart, but on my wall!”
“I also love your painting of one of my favorite creatures on Earth – the turtle. The turtle is often thought to be the wisest of souls among the animal kingdom.Your painting reminds me daily of its symbolism of Order, Creation, Patience, Strength, Stability, Longevity, Innocence, Endurance, and Protection. Thank you for this gift.”
