I painted this yesterday, at 5:30 am, for a woman named Ashlee. It was bought for her as a birthday gift by a friend of mine. I had to mail it off myself so it would arrive on time. I included a little note wishing her a happy day.
It is neat sending mail to people I have never met. I can imagine her reaction of interest and curiosity about who I am, and I know she will smile, because it is something other than a bill.
