Dear Rodrigo,

Thanks so much for your personal delivery of my new, beautiful artwork. I was very excited, and I could barely sleep last night! I arranged some antique pieces, including an old Tiffany box and some antique books on the mantel, and I love the effect. I am so happy that I can gaze on the Degas while I do mundane tasks in the kitchen. I want to tell you how much I appreciate your personal touch, and I look forward to seeing you and your brother San Francisco Bay Area art collector. 2014-03-28 more quotes»
