Thanks for the message, however, I would greatly appreciate if you
could possibly recommend a few completed original of Silke Bachmann
piece within my budget $1000- $2500 ready for immediate sale... Just
need something
within that price range for a surprise to my wife (can tell she likes
your work). I would appreciate if you can figure out a piece of work
that would serve that purpose. Kindly email images and prices of any
available works in that range.
Thanks and blessing
