I'm sure there's plenty of ways you could do this.
Thanks Julie. Your idea sounds simple and logical as far as getting that important meeting. I may include a couple of images with the letter as well as a business card. Problem is I don't have any painting on hand that is relevant to the genre (political portrait) and may just hire a model to do an initial portrait. Crazy perhaps, but it would give him - in this instance - a good idea of my style and what to expect. Thanks again for your excellent advice.
