Hi Val,

The package with your art arrived yesterday afternoon safe and sound as you promised. 

I was stunned when I opened this! It is BEAUTIFUL! 

The aluminum surface really helps to define the memories I have of the Hocking Hills and the size was perfect for the space where I placed this.

Thank you ever so much and I look forward to stopping at your gallery the next time we are able to visit.

Dusty & Val,

Just a quick note to let you know we received the gallery-wrap artwork and have it hanging in our "special place" we spoke of. The artwork reminds of of our roots and we continually find new interesting details in the piece.

Your packaging was excellent and we were really pleased to see the care and time you must have spent preparing it for it's journey to us.

Keep up the blog topics, we check often to look for updates.

Warm regards,

Bill and Veronica S.

Hi DustyBlues!

We stopped by your booth and saw your fine art Pittsburgh photography at Three Rivers Arts Festival this year and were awed by your display. We just could not make up our minds which one to purchase but did get one of your matted prints of "Blue Moon over Pittsburgh" which hangs in our entry way and gets sooo many comments from friends and family who stop by.

We love your web site and your blog is excellent. We would like to stop by your home gallery. We have selected a list of art work from your web site and would love the chance to see a number of these in the larger sized canvas gallery wraps. We FINALLY will get to purchase one.

Dear Val and Dusty,

I received your Art Work “Magenta Dawn" and I wanted to let you know how much joy it brings me. I have placed it so it is the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning. It makes me happy. I have visited Pittsburgh every summer for 20 years. It is the highlight of my year. I try to keep things around my house that remind me of the feelings I have when I am there. Your photo evokes those lovely feelings. Thanks for sharing your work with us!

Hi Dusty & Val

On the off chance that you don't get too many email notes to read, I wanted to tell you of my delight at my son's delight with the framed photograph I mailed him at his new residence at grad school in NC. He called me immediately and told me how much it means to him and reminds him of home.

Thanks so much!

Hi there,

My order arrived today and as always am amazed by your work. I have it hanging already and the sunlight filtering in through the bay windows causes the colors to glow!

Thanks you so much!

Val and Dusty,

Your work takes me away - back to summers on Pittsburgh’s rivers - what a trip! Thank you, thank you - may you be richly rewarded for your passions.

You have no idea how much your work has touched my heart, and my soul. Your passion for photography is overwhelming, as is your talent for finishing each piece.

Dusty and Val,

You, in your own ways carry the torch and spread the imagery, the emotion, the voice, and the tone of the desert southwest. How lovely...

Dusty & Val,

Dear Val,

Looking deep into each of your photographs, I was instantly overcome with emotion and tears began running down my face. I stood there, letting myself feel this emotion, and at that moment I knew that everything was going to be ok for me.

Each photograph made me realize (in it's own special way) that there is so much out there that I haven't seen or experienced. So much beauty that I've missed out on.

Hi Dusty,

It was great to talk with you at Shadyside and I was so pleased to be able to add to my art collection with one of your pieces. If you remember our conversation, I am a film student and a photographer. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your photographs and the stories behind them.

I hope to see you and Val at Three Rivers Arts Fest this year.

Best Regards,

Kim K.


Dusty and Val,

The feeling of those treasured moments instantaneously returned as I visually travelled the sentimental journey of the past to the present each time I gaze at the wonderful photograph we purchased for our collection at Harrisburg.

I was also incredibly touched by your humble and forthright discussions. Art is all encompassing. Your style and willingness to share precious personal aspects of your life embellished the sensual nature of the photographs and made the experience an interactive personal exchange.

Hi Val,

I just wanted to say a couple of things to you.

One, we not only enjoyed meeting both of you, but wish to once again thank you for the lovely artwork of abstracts we purchased. These put us right at ease and allow us to reflect back on some really good moments, meaning that these pieces will always be special to us.

Dusty and Val,

The art work arrived today and is already right beside me on the wall in my office here at home. It's even more magnificent than I imagined and I think a very important work of yours. It's in fantastic condition too, as your care and preparation in packaging and shipping had this arrive in pristine condition. In short I'm a very happy customer and will definitely keep an eye on your web site.

Thank you for helping to make Christmas so memorable.  My wife loved the prints.  Thank you for insisting on the print of the Blue Moon over Pittsburgh, as it is indeed beautiful.

Just to let you know that the Gallery wrap has arrived safe and sound.

I am so impressed by the black shadow framing - it looks amazing!

Please send my very best regards to the guys. Cheerio




Everything arrived as promised. Words cannot express my feelings for this art work and you and Val’s handling of it.

Thanks again.
