“Julia: I thought you might be interested in seeing how the fireplace that I painted yesterday has turned out. Three of the pieces you used are on the “steps”, Cavan Gonzales, top step and left middle row of tiles, 2nd step is the Acoma pot, middle of the top row of tiles and the third step is Maria/Santana wedding vase, middle of the bottom row of tiles. If I was ever happy with “slow” progress, it was that the fireplace took longer than expected and gave you the time needed to complete the tiles!! Your work was timely and beautifully done.”
