"Dear Dave: Thank you so much for the beautiful painting of my pups. Isaac and Darrell meant everything to me, and now that they have passed over the rainbow, I can gaze at your painting and keep their memory alive. God blessed you with tremendous talent and blessed me with the painting.
Thank you again!"

"David Wagner is a pleasure to work with. From photographs, David created paintings of three scenes from our trip to Alaska that allow us to revisit Alaska 365 days a year from California without walking out the door. If you would like to commission a portrait or a painting of a favorite scene at a fair price, I highly recommend that you call Dave Wagner."

The painting is hanging in our living room and it was the hit of the party last night! We had about 20 guests over and between talking about your painting and showing people your website you should be hiring us to promote your work. I'm not kidding. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job, we've already got something else in mind."

 "Dear David,

What a surprise it was to see the badly taken photo I sent you turned into what I tried to capture, a master stroke on your part.

You captured a very special moment and gave it the soul it was missing in the photo. Again David may I say well done and thank you for the amazing work you have done for our family.

Andre R Drouin and family."

Andre has commissioned 4 paintings, so far. DW
