A Note of Thanks  from a Client.

I love it!!!


It is just what I had hoped, but had not really
allowed myself to expect.  Purchasing a
portrait online was a challenge and I kept
thinking that I might be being and idiot
deciding to pay more then the average rate
based on digital images on the internet.  I
could not have made a better choice.  

I rushed out to a framing place that I know in
Manhattan to pick out a frame and went with
your suggestion of a wider frame (4").  After
I had chosen the frame and left my deposit he
complimented the painting profusely saying
that this is a quality classic yet modern
portrait and went on and on about the facial

hair blended into the background.  I have had

not just something he does to butter up his

Thank you VERY VERY much.
