Winter Life Exhibition

 

Dear Ms Leonie,
Tonight I had the honor of viewing your painting, “Out of Deep Waters” at the gallery show at St. Peter’s church. It was beautiful. I have never been so engulfed in a painting like I was in yours tonight. It brought me such peace – everything else faded away and I was left in pure contentment for a few precious, stolen moments. When I was away from it all I wanted was to come back to it and soak up its color and tranquility. I feel as though a part of my soul is expressed in that painting. The Lord was good to me tonight in giving me the blessing of viewing your painting. Thank you for this beautiful work you entered in the show. Keep painting!
