Madame et Monsieur

Here you see what I have been working on over the last few days (weeks actually!) - a commission of some friends of mine as a birthday gift for the lady's mother.
It was fun taking it to their house this afternoon - for one thing the painting was very well received and secondly it went along with an invitation to a charming little lady's tea party, topped with sparkling champagne in the early evening. Thank you very much, Monique!!

Thank you Liza for the nice work you did on us!
I'm sure my parents will be delighted.

The afternoon we spent with Audrey and Ling gave me a lot of energy. You are all wonderful people! Hope we can meet up together more often!

Wishing you a very happy 2010 with all the people that you love.

Avec toutes nos amitiés,

Wow Liza,

Liza Hirst said...

Hi Barbara, sorry for the late reply - everything is so busy at the moment...
Thank you for your comment - yes, they were very pleased it seemed, and I was quite happy with the result too.

This is beautiful, at first glance I thought it might be a photo... I'm sure it was well received indeed.

Hi Nicki,
How nice to hear from you again.
Thank you for leaving your kind comment and good luck with your own work, which I just had a look at - your water paintings are stunning!!
