They might be a special memory from childhood or they might be a dream of something we have to reach.
...But that''s what makes it so special to her clients, and satisfying for her."

" Dear Mrs. Khomoutova,
...I sent you a letter a few days ago ...to tell you how proud I am to exhibit your paintings. I love them!
A couple of weeks ago two young lovers came to the Gallery, I spoke with them and showed your works. A couple of weeks later the young man came to the Gallery before leaving QuÐ¹bec for Pragues and bought the "Seven kisses" and Fireworks" to offer them as a gift for his lover. The paintings were perfect for them.
Thank you for the magic moment you put in our lives with your paintings."

I've just viewed your recent works on the site promoting your upcoming showing in Orleans. WOW - you never cease to amaze. I still treasure the portrait you did of my late brother Terry. I also had you paint a picture of my parents. It was a gift my Mother treasured. Both my parents have passed on, but each time my sisters or I walk past the portrait you did...it feels as though Mom & Dad are really looking at us. You are a very special person and blessed with a God-given gift of creating portraits that resonate and give such comfort and joy to those who receive them. Your other works that are non-portraits are equally beautiful. I especially love "Precious". I wish you continued success. God bless and keep both you and Alexander."
