” Hi Daniel,

The night of the Canal Winchester Art Guild opening at CS Gallery you gave me a sheet of your handmade paper.  I did a watercolor painting on it and wanted to show it to you before it was framed.  It is great paper for WC.  I didn’t have to stretch it wet, just painted on it and it did not roll or otherwise get out of shape.  I would highly recommend it.  Thank you! ”
