Hi Aida ,
Good to hear back from you. Yes,i will like to proceed with the
purchase of RedX. I think it is a lovely work and i hope to give it a
good home. I think i first heard about your work at the Plaza Art
Fair, Kansas City.
We are going through a lot this summer and i am presently on my way to
Paris for my Sister's wedding even though it comes at a time when i am
preparing for a big move to Saratoga Springs, NY but it means so much
to her and i should be back in few days.
Meanwhile,i will like you to forward your mailing address and phone
number so i can inform my husband on where to forward the payment . He
is also in London for a business conference but should be able to get
one of his PA to handle the payment. I can also forward your contact
info to the local cartage company that will be moving all our house
decors so they can get in touch with you to arrange shipping details.
They can arrange FedEx or UPS pick up of the artwork from your studio.
I will look forward to hearing from you so i can know how best to
