"There are not enough words to express our gratitude for what Ed did for us. He captured our angel Logan's soul through his painting.  I've worked with a lot of artists from the past. I have Never met an artist who can capture the soul of the dog like him. The work he puts into the painting of them and their eyes. There is a saying 'you can see a dog's soul through their eyes.' This is what Ed does.  He has such an amazing gift and talent!  This painting meant a lot to me and my husband after losing Logan to cancer.  It was not only a precious gift to receive but it helped us heal.  Ed, we can't thank you enough for this Gorgeous, amazing work of art. Your paintings touch everyone who sees them and owns one ."

"I saw Ed's dog paintings at a dog show while visiting North Carolina.  He had a large painting which looked like my beloved Airedale.  Knowing that I was heading back home and could not fit the large painting in my car, I commissioned Ed to do a smaller head shot, similar to the large airedale painting he had on display.  Ed made the whole process very easy and I couldn't wait to get my "Brutus" shipped to me.  Even though I still grieve, many years after losing him, I can't express how much I love having this painting of his sweet face.  Ed, you did a fantastic job of capturing his expression that I adored.  Thank you."
