"I love your work. I have purchased two paintings from you. ... I received a few days of wonderful assistance from you a couple of years ago in a workshop. You absolutely transformed my view of landscapes from giant vistas to detailed places of peace and wonder. I believe those few days with you and your guidance has propelled me into more plein air than I had ever thought possible. Thank you for your genius and patience."
