This Made My Day

I received this email yesterday. It made my day.

I doubt that you will remember me, but I purchased your reclining nude. I have it in my bedroom and as I walk in the room, it greets me warmly. I love it. I think that I may have purchased it about four or more years ago.

Dr. Wilhemina Perry (Mina Perry)

I remember the day Ms. Perry purchased this painting like it happened just yesterday. My friend Mike Trovato and I sold artwork on the weekends at NYC's Green Flea. Ms. Perry was walking by (outside of the schoolyard where the market is held). She came back and called to me through the fence, inquiring about the painting. The rest, as they say, is his(her)story.
