    Dear Sheila,

    What a beautiful portrait– a very gentle and harmonious placement of the painter in his space. And admirably made visible the day after it was made. This series of Artists and Merchants continues to lead to some of your finest work, drawing your sensitive eye to its fullest engagement with the subject in its environment. Congratulations and Thank You!

      Thanks, Elvira—-high praise indeed! Peter’s work space is actually an enviable portrait studio—en plein air. One can watch the progress of his paintings from my parents’ balcony… I always love to see what he’s got going.

    if it weren’t for the painting, I’d think he was a mathematician… (that’s a compliment.)
