    I would like to know if Ray’s other paintings are on-line to look at and to purchase. Are prices listed on-line? Thanks, Debi

    Beautiful art, Ray, just beautiful! I was captivated by The Story, and I sincerely hope the gallery is packed with people lining up to buy Ray’s beautiful paintings! I only wished I lived in VA to attend!

    I just listened to “The Story” on NPR.
    I would be interested in a blank note cards assortment of Ray’s nostalgic prints.
    Even a box of say 8-10 blank note cards with his award winning painting would be nice.
    These are great for those of us who can’t purchase the paintings but would still like to bring the art home and share it with our friends too. Thanks, Leslie (California)

    One of the most memorable and moving stories I’ve heard. Glad I chose to listen to the radio rather than watch television last night. Absolutely LOVE the picture of Main Street and most anxious to see Ray’s other paintings. What a nice guy – real salt of the earth. Love his devotion to his mother!

    I just want to say that Ray’s story was one of the most heart-warming stories I’ve heard in years. I am a frustrated artist and learning about Ray’s success has encouraged to pick up my pencils, pens, and brushes and just create art. If you are born with wings, you are supposed to fly.

    I only buy art from people I know, or have met. Thanks to “The Story,” I really believe I got to know Ray Matthews. What a pleasure it is to meet you, Ray. I look forward to having one of your paintings become a guest in our home.

    I really enjoy “The Story” and once again I was not disappointed by the story of Ray Matthews. Ray, it would be a privilege to have a piece of your work in our house, especially if it allows me to tell Ray’s story to all of our guests.
