    Your paintings are absolutely beautiful. I could not stop looking at them and just
    feeling a great sense of appreciation for the Latin Culture. I was able to feel such a connection with our Peruvian brothers and sisters as if I were one of them. I probably never would have taken the time to do so. Thank you for opening my eyes through your wonderful work. God bless you and may you continue to grow in all you set your heart to do.
