I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was dealing with you. As you know, it was very difficult for me to sell my mother’s Paul De Longpre. I cherished it both for its beauty and the happy memories I associated with it. You made the experience of letting it go so much easier. It’s not just that I feel you gave us a fair price for the painting but you seem to have a real appreciation for the piece and took the time to educate me about both the artist and the art world in general. I look forward to our continued friendship.
