Oh, DonnaMarie!!!  My feet haven't touched the ground yet and I find myself spending most spare moments sitting in awe of our work together!  You are truly one of the most extraordinary women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing!!   It was so wonderful to see you the other night and I'd love to have a chance to visit and catch up.  Sounds like you've got some amazing things going on ... Love and thanks to you...... DawnMarie

Donna Marie,
I wanted to thank you for such  a great sitting this past Saturday. It was only a little bit of work for so much fun and such an invigorating experience. The more I look at the pictures Chris took the  more excited and pleased  I
am I chose to do it. Even  though I did very little work,  I'm proud of myself for taking a step towards making peace  with my body by committing it to a canvas. I found the experience incredibly liberating in ways I hadn't imagined. To see a different representation of my body other than the one I see in the mirror was transformative. I highly recommend the process to anyone, especially those who haven't ever been able to see the beauty in their  own body. I can't thank you enough for creating a wonderful environment in which to participate in a personal work of art. (I felt like a kid in a candy store who got away        with the goods.)I can't wait to see the finished product.  thank you very much  vionnette
PS. I'm considering doing this once a decade. ;)

I remember watching Donna Marie as she painted my body.  She had so much passion as she created my image on a piece of canvas and you get caught up in her energy and love for her art.  I liked the fact that we picked out colors that reflected who I am.  I was truly excited to see the outcome.  The final result was gorgeous.  She captured a part of me I never saw.   I would do 100 more just to see how Donna Marie creates each piece.  They are truly originals.  Lorrie
