Maureen, it has been my/our pleasure meeting you and Steve and experiencing what giving, wonderful people you both are. When we first learned of your artistic talents, never did we dream that your art would have such a prominent place not only in the City of Downey’s History, but also in the City and County of Roscommon, Ireland.
Bob and I were honored to be part of the delegation in the twinning of the two cities, and the two portraits that you painted of John Gately Downey, which now hang prominently in the Cities of Downey and Roscommon, Ireland are outstanding. Not only did your paintings bring more emphasis to his historical background in starting the City of Downey, but took him back to his home in Ireland to be admired for his endeavors by many.It has truly been my/our pleasure to experience your beautiful art and to continue enjoying your portraits that have followed for the Downey Historical Rives Mansion, and the Church of the Resurrection. Truly beautiful! Congratulations, Alda Sichting, Past President Downey Sister Cities / Past Commissioner for Cities of Downey and Bell Gardens , CA

Maureen your art work not only bespeaks your talent and skill as a gifted artist but, also your personable and persistent laborious efforts. To know you as I know you is very special. I know you are also the apple of your husbands eye. Not only are you the apple of his eye, you are also 'My Dear Heart.'
When I peruse your paintings it's personifying. It soothes and allays the passions, while engendering thought and knowledge. Your work is impeccable. Your art work and friendship is a compliment of your Creator.

Really enjoy your paintings!! Thank you!
Lovely paintings by a lovely woman who can do just about anything she sets her mind to. Bravo!
Maureen is that rare artist who is gifted on many levels: clear representation of topic, exceptional colorization, and honest multi-dimensional insight into the soul of her subjects. Her works are memorable, and stay with the patron long after viewing. KUDOS.
Maureen is an amazing and talented artist. Her paintings are beautiful and very inspirational. My husband and I are honored to have one of her original paintings in our home. It brings us such joy!
Maureen is a wonderful, talented and imaginative artist who always captures the very essence of her subject. We are very proud owner of her works and have the very great pleasure of enjoying them daily. She continues to be a treasure to us all.
Maureen is so versatile and talented - I wish that I had even a fraction of her ability to take paint and breathe so much life into her canvas!
Her works come alive, her subjects are diverse and her communication comes through loud and clear!
I really love the WC Fields. Your art is an inspiration to us all!
Your art is so wonderful. Clearly the inspiration passes through your heart before the brush touches the canvas. I am also touched by the range and depth of your subject matter. Please don't ever stop producing, I want to continue to be amazed every time I visit your website.
What beautiful art! The vibrant colors, the humanity of the subjects and the gorgeous finished works. Your talent brings joy to so many. It's clear it comes from a place deep in your heart.
I very much enjoy looking at your paintings. They bring peace to me no matter what's going on.
Thank you for the beautiful work you do. I have 3 of your pictures in my home. Right now I am looking at the fountain with the little dog looking up at the water running over the edge. A soothing picture that makes me smile. Your picture of Jesus that you painted for the Catholic church is so beautiful. Donna Courville is my daughter.
My wife is a lover of cats and birds. Both kinds of creatures play prominent roles in Maureen Gaffney’s beautiful pictures of Humphrey the San Diego feline, and the Autumn Bench, which adorn the walls of our Virginia home. Maureen is a one-of-a-kind artist with amazing talent, through use of color, texture, and selection of theme. The rich and vivid portraits that she creates must be seen to be fully appreciated. It would be hard to walk away from her gallery without selecting something to take with you!
All the best, Maureen!!
We met Steve and Maureen in Napa several years ago. They became close friends of my
close friends, the Courvilles. I saw her work in the Courvilles' home snd quickly purchased a beautiful still life for myself. I value that piece and I sm proud to
dusplay it in my home
I am honored and proud to know an amazing artist and friend. Love you
Amazing and Inspirational artist. Maureen's work excites the soul and brings us a little closer to that inner peace we are all searching for. Her work is uniquely beautiful and we are privileged that she shares it with us.
I have been browsing Maureen's website for a couple of years after seeing one of her paintings of a bird that was gifted to close friends. What should have been an ordinary bird was transformed into an extraordinary painting with the attention to details in every inch of canvas. Such talent is rare and Maureen's paintings touch a wide range of people's sentiments. Keep painting Maureen, we love to see what else you create and turn into beauty.
Maureen's work continues to amaze. She is both generous and talented and generous with her talent. Her portrait of John Downey is centre stage in the council chamber of Roscommon County Council, home county of John Downey, Ireland. I look forward to seeing in person the "sister" portrait of John Downey that hangs in Downey, California. Wishing Maureen continued success.
When I first got together with Maureen it was like we always knew each other. A wonderful warm and loving woman. To have one of her beautiful paintings hanging in our home is just very special. We hope to have many more special times to share together. Warm regards from Robin and David Tuggey.
