Dear Glenda, 25 July 2016
Our deepest thanks for the magnificent portrait of Tom, Mona and myself on our way to England as the air attaché 42 years ago today. It is also Tom’s 42nd birthday as well as his first wedding anniversary to Yoko so this beautiful portrait was a wonderful surprise. I can not thank Erin Cassidy enough for selecting you and all the work she did to assist you in creating this wonderful portrait as well as the print you made for us. We are deeply grateful, our deepest thanks.
Tom and Mona.
“I cannot begin to tell you what a treasure the portrait of Scott is. You not only captured the physical aspects of him but more so his essence, I feel his happiness and warmth. It is more than I ever imagined, it truly is so a gift to have. You will always have a special place in my heart, this was such a personal journey for me and I am so grateful that you are the one who painted this piece for me.” Fondly, Alicia Dickinson
