Melanie and Nicholas,
Oh my goodness, Frankie's portrait is, well again, beyond my words to describe. It seems 3-dimensional, and the color is stunning. For the fifth time I am truly amazed at Nicholas' skill. You'd think I'd quit being 'blow away' by his talents .... I am so thankful that I found you both! I have numerous people who what to see the oil once it's safely here. Again, please tell Nicholas how much we appreciate him and what he's brought to our home.
