I love surprises. That's what made this commission piece very special. My friend, Ron Perry wanted to surprise his lovely wife, Lillian, with a portrait gift of their 16 year old great- granddaughter. Working incognito, he was able to provide me with a photograph of the lovely teenager. It was a joy working on this piece, especially knowing that it was to be a gift of love. Thanks Ron, for this opportunity and thank you Lillian, for your lovely words of appreciation.
