Subject: Applying for the position of an artist

Respected Mr. Cooper,

This is in reference to the vacancy in your organization for the position of an artist. I would like to apply for the same position.

I would like to introduce myself as an artist with an eye for details. I have been a painter professionally since I completed my graduation from an art school. At the beginning of my career I was into doing sketching work for construction companies as a freelancer. Eventually my paintings started getting exhibited in various galleries.

I can assure that I would be ideal candidates as I also do abstract paintings and that is the kind of paintings you usually sell to your clients. I am enclosing some of my works of art.
