"I want to thank you for capturing the spirit of Twin Lakes Beach in your painting. Twin Lakes has always been a backdrop for my life. My life has been shaped by this sense of place. It is in my earliest memories, my childhood, my youth, and it continues to be a place I am drawn to for so many reasons: exercise, relaxation, celebration, inspiration, solitude, contemplation, comfort, or just a moment to breathe and rejoice in the beauty of nature.
In short, you have given me a beautiful representation of a very important place in my world. That it was created just for me makes it even more precious.
Your work is stunning. You have created a piece of art that includes the physical features of the place and captures the spirit I derive from it."
