Amazing news, such a fantastic piece of art with a wonderful subject, and now the proceeds from its sale will be put to good use. This together with the amount the portrait of Mariam reached, you must be on cloud 9 Angus. Well deserved but also so generous.
This is fabulous.
That is very exciting. Can’t wait to hear more.
Fantastic news all round
How wonderful, it's such a significant piece!
That's made my day.
