In September I received an inquiry from Serei C. in California for a 40"x 50” painting similar to River of Hope. After emailing back and forth and a phone conversation to discuss specifics, the painting was commissioned and underway. River of Hope 2 was painted, sealed, cured and shipped out the first week in November to it’s new home in California. It arrived safely, was uncrated, and waiting to be hung.
Here is what Serei said in an email after unpacking River of Hope 2:
”...I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the painting. Also, you and your husband did a phenomenal job with the packing! Our 13 year son helped open up the crate and he said he liked the detailed instructions and drawings on the crate. Additionally, your bio is very impressive; you are such an accomplished artist! It has been a pleasure working with you and exchanging emails, I really enjoyed the process. We have not hung the picture yet, still enjoy looking at it in front of the fire place; we will put it up this weekend and will email you the picture once it is up. Thank you again for your wonderful work on the RIVER OF HOPE II."
~~Thank you, Serei! I am thrilled that River of Hope 2 has found such a loving, appreciative home. It always thrills my heart when a collector is pleased with one of my paintings. You were a pleasure to work with and I sincerely hope the painting will bring you many years of enjoyment.
