    To whom it may concern:

    My name is Alan from Washington DC. I was looking out for some of your paintings , perhaps ,to be honest with you my wife is a huge fan ‘ALAINE BECKER’ if you must know , she’ll be very glad to own one of your piece of art , she loves to collect art works and I came up with this idea that I was gonna surprise her with one of your paintings , basically i’m doing this without her knowledge , literally i decided to see for myself if I could reach out to you somehow , perhaps to purchase one of your best art work as a gift for my wife like i mentioned earlier , it has to be a surprise for our 20th anniversary coming up soon…

    Please kindly send pictures and price tag of some of your art which are ready for immediate sale with a price range of $500- $5000,i’d love a special piece for that special spouse , guess you aware of what i have in mind, i could be flexible with price. l hope to hear a lot more about any available piece in your inventory ready for sale.

    i’d be obliged if you could be of assistance regarding the exact painting for a properly organized anniversary.

    Thanks and kind regards,
