    Hi Brad,

    Your painting is wonderful!

    It was great to celebrate with you during L’Arche Syracuse’s 40th Anniversary, and it was moving to hear you express that friendships are what you appreciate most about being in L’Arche.

    Wonderful abstract paintings. Great color and composition. If you can bare parting with your art, I’m sure it would sell quickly.
