My wife had been sick for some time and I tried everything to make her feel better. For some reason I felt better when she was feeling good. One day I saw a beautiful flower painting in a window and without thinking too much about it bought it and took it home. My wife looks at it every day and says how it makes her feel happy. That made me very appreciative of art. Thank you Lisa V. Rick from Portland Oregon.
