The package arrived safely yesterday and I unpacked it carefully last night (the gallery did a great job of protecting it!). The painting looks really lovely and I find myself constantly looking at her face to try to fathom her expression. It is "bienveillant" as they say in French, a positive picture. You can see that i am very happy! The picture is yet to find its definitive location in the apartment, but this is a likely spot.
Very best regards to you,
