Hi Daniel,
I wanted to tell you once again what a wonderful portrait you created of Mark. I was simply taken aback with the real thing even though I had been informed and saw sketches while it was developing. Still,  I was not fully prepared for the subtly eloquent  result. Of course, nothing compares to seeing a painting "in the paint"!  You captured his likeness but more importantly, his pride, respect and joy at what he did as a jurist. Thank you for your skill and for the attention you gave to learning very rapidly who Mark was, and what others thought of him to inform how you would paint his portrait. It made all the difference in the result, I think.

When you unveiled the portrait last Tuesday, I was captivated. I was so glad we chose the background in that great hallway, for one. It allowed for a lovely light to be infused into what I often see as dark offices or courtrooms in other portraits, and gives an uplifting lightness. Then, Mark just seems to pop off the canvas with that background and is so true to who he was! My children were enthralled. 

After his memorial service this past Saturday, about 30 family members went to the court to see the portrait and have a quick tour of his old spaces. They, too, were so pleased by the portrait. Our Thanksgiving started the week before with this wonderful gift. Thank you.

"I was inspired and moved by a recent unveiling of his portrait, commissioned by the Connecticut Bar Foundation, which will be hung in New Haven's Federal courthouse. I invite my Senate colleagues to join me in paying respect to Judge Mark Kravitz and sending condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues, who mourn his loss, and remember a man who made his life's work contributing to the world around him. "
 –Richard Blumenthal, United States Senator

It has been our pleasure, Dan.  The portrait is now hanging, and it's all I can do to not pop in the room every half hour!  What a terrific portrait this is.  It adds yet more Dan Duffy luster to the Alumni Reading Room.  Best to you and your lovely daughter (who I hope was not bored out of her mind with all the lawyer jokes!)
