Hi-

Just to let you know that we appreciated your donation to our auctions. We again raised over $5,000 to help greyhounds. This due to the generosity of donors such as yourselves.

Also, this is the last year Finger Lakes Adopt A Grey(FLAAG) will be associated with the auctions at Grapehounds NY. We are going to hold a series of online auctions to raise funds for our group. We sincerely hope that we can come to you for your support of our hounds.

 

With GREYT appreciation,

Ro & the Hounds

You made a difference! Thank you for changing the lives of cancer patients and their families. During the 2014 Leit-Hearted Campaign you raised almost $9000. I was moved constantly by the outpouring of your generosity and support. Thank you for coming alongside me fun and lighthearted way to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I hope you join me and my team next year as we bring more positive impact to areas of our community that need more Leit.

Stephanie Mercer

Enzie,

I wanted to have a beautiful tribute to my gorgeous 17-yr old Tuxedo cat, Jake, who I lost to cancer New Year’s Eve 2012 but just wasn’t sure what I wanted.  After seeingyour pet portraits on Etsy, I contacted you right away.  You were wonderful and made some suggestions that I would never have thought of  like putting Jake in a garden setting when he never stepped outside the house.  I wasn’t too sure about it but said I’d like to see what you had in mind.  The sample you sent me was so perfect we decided on going with that one. I fell in love with it.  You updated me along the way and very little was changed.  The end result was gorgeous and I just received the finished portrait a few days ago.  When I opened the box I felt like crying.  It was absolutely beautiful and so much richer than any photograph I have of him.  Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You amazing work!

 

Regards, Debbie Menetret

Mr. Safdar, a very accomplished photographer had taken this photo of his niece and allowed me to paint her.

"Enzie painted a beautiful portrait of my heeler/dalmatian mixed dog, and it came out absolutely stunning. From the detail in the various textures of my dogs coat, to capturing the dark black lips she has, the painting looks just like, if not better than, the photo." Natalie S.

Often client's pick up their painting and their beaming smiles says it all! I was still working on this painting, when the photo was taken. More than not I forget to ask for a photo to be taken while a delivery is made. Fortunately someone else remembered to snap a photo.

One of the biggest compliments I can receive is when a client buys several of my paintings. Mrs. Beth Akerman purchased this painting in 2012 as well and  said this after she received the painting in the mail: "It's finally at my place and so beautiful. I will post it again when framed and hung up on the wall. Love your work Enzie!

Rozie Hadley purchased this painting during the fund raising auction I organized for the UNHCR "Wau! The painting just this minute arrived - safe and sound and so so lovely! I am thrilled to bits with it. She reminds me of Sarah - a girl I met in Nairobi, Kenya in 2000. So this makes this painting even more special. The web picture did not do it justice, the colours are wonderful. Thank you, thank you - I love it. It will have pride of place here in the chaotic Hadley household." Mrs. Rozie Hadley ~ WestMidlands, United Kingdom    My contact at UNHCR had the following to say ... Development Assistant - United Nation Refugee Agency "Thank you again for your support!" ~Ms.  Caitlin Van Orden ~ Washington, DC   This was sent from the photographer who took the original photo of the little Sudanese girl at the feeding center in Darfur. "She looks beautiful! I wish the girl in red from the feeding center could see it herself!" Ms. Stephanie Zito

My teacher and mentor Mr. Marvin Mattelson, to whom I owe a ton of gratitude for teaching me how to push myself to the next level, had this to say: "Enzie, you did a spectacular job! The workshop painting of Stephanie Meyer was your most cohesive and unified painting to date, in my opinion. Also, it couldn't have happened to a sweeter person. There is a moment in each successful artist's life where they reach "critical mass", a state where all efforts begin to align and things quickly move forward. I believe that you reached this state during the workshop and I look forward to the fruits of your future labors." Mr. Marvin Mattelson ~ Great Neck, NY
