"Ramona’s motivational message is to ‘look up and around.’ She uses her paintings to open your eyes to this beautiful world. Her paintings move you to remember your blessings in life. Our children are our greatest blessings. We wanted a special gift for a special couple, Brian & Ashley, for their 1st wedding anniversary. Ramona painted “The Wedding Cake”. What an emotional impact!! The colors are vivid and captivating. Tears flooded Ashley’s eyes. The painting draws your eye in, and keeps you looking, as if it teleports you back to that very special day. KUDOS!!! my dear friend, Ramona. And thank you, for sharing your special gift with my family; it will help Brian & Ashley celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday and the hopes of tomorrow."

"I have loved paintings all of my life and have only recently been in a position to start collecting. I knew I would have a reaction to Ramona’s painting when I saw it for the first time but it simply took my breath away. I honestly felt I was looking at the work of a master!! It’s more than a little gem, it’s a treasure and it will be well loved and admired in its new home in New Zealand."

"Ramona has captured the magic of a twilight moment between daylight and dark in "Waterloo Village Evening". A snow covered hill glows with colors, and the delicate lace of shadows from winter bare branches falls across the landscape. Weatherworn buildings share this peaceful scene with all the beauties of nature - a single twinkling window draws the viewer's eye to the point where woods melt into sky. I am so fortunate to be able to delight in this little jewel of a painting every day -- it will bring joy for many years to come."

WATERLOO VILLAGE EVENING
"When I needed a special present for my brother, who lives in Italy, I asked Ramona to do an oil painting of a lake scene during his favorite fall season. She listened carefully to my needs and then painted this gorgeous oil painting that is now hanging in his apartment in Genoa to remind him of home."

"Our wedding painting is one of the few things from our wedding that is unique only to us and to that moment in time. Most weddings consist of similar details, there’s a cake, and photographs and flowers. But, Ramona’s painting captured for us every aspect of those few minutes we stood at the altar. Often my husband and I look at it and we are instantly taken away, to the astounding peace we felt the second we took each other’s hands, the lightness of the air, the way everyone, and everything, faded so it was just the two of us in the woods making our promises. Whenever I think of my wedding I think of the painting, and like a movie, the painting comes to life, and there I am enveloped with sheer joy of the moment. I never imagined a painting could mean so much, or have such power."

"I looked out my daughter's kitchen window and there in her garden, I saw these few lovely rosebuds - the last of the season. I immediately ran outside, first to have one last sniff at their fragrance, and then gently cut them away from their mother branch. Yes, I was going to enjoy these last beauties as long as they lived. Then, an idea occurred to me - why not have them immortalized in a painting, and that is exactly what I set out to do. Therefore, Ramona's oil painting "Forever" of my beloved 'rosebuds', now reside in my daughter's lovely home, which is enjoyed by friends and family alike. My sincere thanks and appreciation to you, Ramona."
