Armando - I had the great pleasure of meeting you on Saturday at the Naperville Riverwalk Art Fair, and fell madly in love with your work! Specifically the long red piece, with the circles representing past and future dreams on either side that meet in the middle (which I apologize that cannot remember the name of). Unfortunately for me, your pieces are out of my price range, and I could not take one home :(
I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that of al the art I viewed on Saturday, yours was my absolute favorite - not only your designs, but your story, your inspirations and the representation of all of that in your art. Thank you for bringing such beauty and emotion into this world.
The art looks awesome in our family room. I hope you had a very successful weekend! Thanks for a bunch of future enjoyment.

Hi Armando. Your beautiful painting arrived safely at my home today. I am rethinking the original spot I had in mind for display, but I will send you a picture once I have decided. It is as beautiful and exciting as I remember from the art show in Manyunk. Thank you so very much !! I will be returning for additional pieces in the future..
Warmest regards kind and most talented man!
Armando The paintings are amazing and I love them more each day. It's true that pictures doesn't do them justice as I have sent them to people, who then saw them in person and had same reaction.
Can't wait to enjoy them for years to come and I will send pictures as I have them up at my new place in Denver.
Armando, I was distracted by the holiday festivities, and meant to contact you sooner, but I just wanted to let you know that I received your piece and I absolutely love it! The photos were representative but certainly did not do your painting justice! The colors are vibrant yet the elegance of the piece is undeniable. It is the perfect addition to my kitchen! We had a party yesterday, and while UMich lost, Blessing Bowls was a hit! At least, so say my two best friends! Thank you for your artistry and patience with me. It was truly worth the wait!
You're such a talent. I will continue to troll your website from time to time to see how your work evolves. Maybe when I grow up, I'll be able to purchase another piece! 😉
Thank you again. It was a pleasure working with you!

The highlight of my day was meeting you. Thank you for sharing a bit of your journey with my husband and me. It is a fascinating story and I am so happy that you discovered that very gifted part of yourself. Sometimes the Universe works in mysterious ways.
And thank you so very much for your most generous gift of contributing a painting to our organization. Our Annual Gala will be held on February 21st next year and we would be honored to be able to auction one of your works. If you would like to know more about us our website is www.familymatterschicago.org. It is an organization that I believe in deeply that is committed to supporting and nurturing the abilities of marginalized families. We are governed by three "Principles of Leadership" that I believe would resonate with you.
I very much admire your work and am still trying to figure out if I can find a place in the house for the $1800 piece that I asked you about. Wishing you many blessings and much happiness.
