the letter I received from the collector who purchased this painting when had it delivered to him and after he saw it in person. He is Ed Morris (Ed Morris

Thank you Arion,
This is a magnificent piece that I believe reflects a potentially major talent.
As you can imagine there many many thousands of "paintings" available, but when you eliminate those which are truly not "art," the selection is more limited.
Even so, collectors must make difficult choices . . . wall space is limited, money is limited and collected works must complement or contrast each other, yet also retain their power when they stand alone independently.
Making a purchase over the internet complicates the process because the collector does not actually see the piece in reality. But the internet also provides access to a broader spectrum of works' making decisions more difficult.
My instincts tell me that I have made the right decision here. I hope that this piece and "Vertigo" represent the fundamental establishment of a style and artistic vocabulary that becomes your trademark.
When one encounters a work by a true artist it is instantly recognizable as belonging to that artist's opus, I believe that these two pieces you have found your style.
