    Dear Mr Todd Siler,
    I have recently found out that you have received the 2011 da Vinci art world award.

    I was very much impressed when I watched the lecture you gave concerning your art.
    I want to tell you here, that I have been following your artistic path since many years now and also confess that I’m very found of your works. I have always hoped that you would reach some such peaks.
    What a great artist we have with you!
    Thank you for all the new perspectives you have revealed with the connections between art and science.
    Best regards. P
