Over the many years of my career as an artist, I have received letters and notes from my clients telling me how much they have enjoyed owning my work. I have appreciated each of them. Recently I received one from Tom and Rochelle McDonald. I must say it was a beautifully written note and it really touched me. I was surprised because the artwork is a painting on a 30” hand contoured, rag paper disc, which I created in 1995. Tom, only 25 at the time, commissioned it for his sweetheart, Rochelle. Tom and Rochelle are now married; they have a son, Quinn and live in a lovely home at Berkley Lake. Tom remodeled their home a year ago and built a fantastic custom niche to display the disc. He sent me a couple of photos, one of which I have posted here. Thank you, Tom and Rochelle; I feel honored, you made my day!

Another note of appreciation goes to Barry H. who recently purchased a large acrylic painting, “Rites of Spring”. Barry saw a canvas giclee of another one of my paintings in a health club he recently joined in North Carolina. He found my web site and a painting he liked. Long story short, the buyer and seller are happy. Thanks, Barry.


  1. Greetings dear Eva,

    There is nothing more rewarding than a letter of appreciation and to know that ones artwork is given a place of honour.

    Enjoy your weekend,

  2. Egmont, you are so right about this. I also appreciate my friends dropping by and commenting on my posts. Thank you.

  3. notes are a gift , it is so good when you feel that someone really like and it means a lot to he/she .
    the both paintings on this post agre great , i liked the top one too that is hard to see .

  4. Thank you Caio. Yes, I guess because the painting is sitting up in a niche it made it hard to get a good picture of it.

  5. Hi Eva
    How very lovely these works are. And what a treat it is to share in the appreciation that others have shown for your senstive paintings.

    What a tribute to you that these years later your friends created a special niche to show off the circular it even more of a place honor.

  9. Thanks, Mary Ann, for stopping by my blog and commenting. I just noticed your new hair style and color. It is very becoming!

  10. Eva -- how wonderful that people take the time to stay in touch with you. I often wondered why we don't paint within a circle form, which is so intrinsic to our being. Beautiful works!

  11. Thank you Kelly. I appreciate your comments. Yes, I enjoy painting in a circular format. I contoured the rag board to form a concave disc and created a base for hanging. I only did a few of them as there was so much involved in the process.

  12. e
