  1. Dear Doug,

    I’ m a member of the Salmagundi Club, went over to see the Non-Members’ Exhibition, and just bought your “One Koi.” Now I happen to collect small human portraits, but never thought I’d be buying one of a fish! Somehow, though, the colors of the koi, the rocks in the water, and the frame are so perfectly right together that I could not resist. Thus, you are the first artist in the show to sell your painting.

    Should you want to hear these compliments over the phone, my number is xxx-xxx-xxxx.

    Cordially, Laura Smith
