It's this kind of piece I would love to have... It's very, very interesting, beautiful, life and painful. As I said in my last mail, I'll certainly go back to you to finalize our command. Have you started to see how the future piece could be delivered in France ?
Thanks,
Romain, Nantes, France

This is a great painting, I can see what went into it, brilliant work, it was worth the effort!
Has the title got anything to to with the Pearl Jam song?
