"I am so happy to be able to purchase the paintings.  I recognized the two road paintings immediately, you truly captured the beauty of the California foot hills.  I also think that VISTA POINT NEAR PATTERSON so perfectly portrays the Central Valley in all its spendor.  I've looked for an original piece that sums up my childhood home, where I played in the orchards and swam in the canals, and this is it.  It's an awesomely beautiful painting. ..... Your paintings bring back wonderful memories of family drives to Sonora, Yosemite, etc. .... Thank you so much, I assure you your "babies" will be loved and cherished!  " R. B. - La Jolla

"....... Your art work first came to my attention on the Central California Art Center site. I have been admiring your works for quite some time. Recently, on one of my "window shopping" trips on the internet, I came across the Pinecrest Lake paintings. I was impressed how you captured the essence of the family vacation at the Lake. ..... The paintings that you have done of the coastal scenes are beautiful, too. I have visited those places many times. I also think that I will eventually have to have one of your foothill works or a Yosemite piece. It seems that you have pretty much "documented" my 31 years of life in California. It is a real pleasure to view your works and I regret that I will not be in California to visit your showing." ..... M. R. --- Beatty, Oregon

"So, to the paintings, it is sooooo difficult to choose. I just love your paintings.    If I was rich, I would just take them all and not bother trying to choose, but reality reigns."  N. L. - Saratoga, CA

"The paintings arrived today, well packed, and in great condition. Rhett, they are so beautiful. I am just enchanted. Honestly, I don't know how you part with them. You are so incredibly talented. Of course I knew they would be more beautiful than the internet pictures, but they are truly stunning. The colors, the details, the depth, the subjects.....you just feel like you could walk right in. They are magical, and I will treasure them always...... I can't decide which one I like the most. I think it is the one I am viewing at the moment. I may just make a "California" wall and group them all together with the pumpkins. Originally, I thought the pumpkins would just come out in the fall as I often change paintings on the wall, but they have never come down. I look at them every day and smile"....... N.L. Saratoga, CA

"Upon receiving the postcard I went to your website and thoroughly enjoyed looking at your work. A year ago in September we purchased "The Old Red Shed" and "Pacific Grove Morning" from the Lyons Head Gallery in Carmel Valley...we love them so much. I also appreciated your sweet note right after our purchase..... Your work is wonderful. "........ J. A. Houston, Texas.

"Ms. Owings: Was in Spencer's and bought Coastal Beach. [note card] Your colors are so beautiful." ..... L. K.

"Love your work. The paintings are beautiful ! " .... .... L. G.

"Where can I see your paintings in either the Monterey County or Sonoma County? I live in the Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco, but visit Pacific Grove often... I bought a few cards of your paintings in Pacific Grove, and gave both to my husband and he also fell in love with your paintings." ........ J.R.

"I just got home today and the paintings were here waiting for me. Thanks so much. They're even nicer in person! I will certainly love hanging them and appreciate all the work that went into creating them." C. B. - South Hamilton, MA

"Dear Ms. Owings, I was just at our local Borders here in Monterey...and saw your fabulous card display for the first time...I purchased the Point Lobos card for a couple that I adore who go to China Cove every weekend. I do staging here on the Peninsula...and your work would fit in to any of my homes! Just beautiful. I wish you had a line of prints, I would use you in every home I do. Sincerely, B.A." --- Carmel, Ca
