Hi, I meant to come look at these. I am grateful to you that you put these two side by side. You would think they are opposites and maybe so but as actors who worked a serious craft they were the same. Miss Monroe studied at the Actors Studio and was very serious about her craft---unfortunately, many, including her studio handlers, were not serious about her. Joshua Logan's Bus Stop was to me Marilyn Monroe as the actress she was meant to be and for you to place her next to the great Maggie Smith speaks volumes to me.

I have never seen Downtown Abbey--perhaps I should.

You painted them like you love them both--there is great care and gentleness. I have never seen your work before. I am honored.
