You, Ivan Karp, were one fabulous person--a delight with your very sincere enthusiasm for Art!

Here's one, a superrealist box by Daniel Douke, which you helped place in my home:

Now, it's true that Douke's box began a period of friends coming by with real boxes offering them to me for a "mere fifty bucks" each!  But despite these jokesters, after about thirty years after bringing this work home, we are still enjoying living with this, and many other art works to which you led us. And you were always so gentle, too, with our challenging (i.e. paltry) art acquisition budget--didn't we trade wine for this artwork?  Anyway, THANK YOU for a life so well-lived you also uplifted other peoples' lives.
