This painting was originally painted as a gift to my daughter.  After I posted it to the website, a client saw it and wanted to buy it, so I repainted it.  It was to be a gift for a special friend’s birthday.  The painting was completed, framed and shipped to the lucky birthday girl.  Upon receiving her gift, I received a note from her that read as follows:

Hello Patti!  WOW!!!

I just received my birthday gift – crying!  It is so beautiful and one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received.  Thank you!  Your work, in person, is amazing and the pictures don’t do it justice.  Just beautiful – I am speechless!

As an artist, this is the kind of review we long to hear.  It is so very rewarding to be able to create something that so moves the recipient.  I am grateful for the opportunity and thrilled to be able to make such an impact for the giver and receiver!
