  1. “Daybreak” hangs in my dining room. I didn’t know much about it aside from that I just loved it. A friend lent me your “The Make Believe World of Maxfield Parrish and Sue Lewin” which I just finished it in one sitting. Thank you for sharing this beautifully told story. It adds a whole new dimension to a print that I had already loved.
