Just wanted to let you know that [the work of art] arrived today and it looks stunning. We are absolutely thrilled with it, thank you.

The framing is superb, and we also appreciated the details – the documentation, pen and memory stick. A lovely touch.

I’ll continue watching your website for other works of interest, and look forward to dealing with you again one day soon.
