WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Your beautiful little painting lives on a sideboard in my dining room, and when we sit down to dinner, my husband often asks me what I am smiling about… I tell him that the painting makes me smile each time I look at it, and I’m so glad I put it in a place where I can see it each evening. Just thought you should know how very much I love it and that it always cheers me...
