" David, Marion and I just wanted to take a few moments
to express to you our sincere gratitude for
your brilliant work on Thee Desperado portrait.
Historically, those that love Egyptian horses
also have a passion for art.
Having commissioned you to paint Thee Desperado
will be a decision we'll always be happy we made.
Jim's work captured Thee Desperado's likeness
in an uncanny fashion. Through the painting,
you can feel the horses' presence and
picture him as he is in his pasture daily.
Again, Jim we send our many thanks for
your hard work and talent,
and we'll cherish our portrait of Thee Desperado
for many, many years to come.
David and I will gladly refer you to our clients,
knowing that they too
would enjoy a first class portrait,
and one that would portably be
passed generation to generation. "
