Greetings!
My name is john Scotfield from SC. I actually observed my wife has
been viewing your website on my laptop and i guess she likes your
piece of work, I’m also impressed and amazed to have seen your various
works too, : )  You are doing a great job. I would like to receive
further information about your piece of work and what inspires you. I
am very much interested in the purchase of the piece (in subject field
above) to surprise my wife. Kindly confirm the availability for
immediate sales.
Thanks and best regards,
john.

Thank you, Michele C. Kishita for letting us know!
