Dear [Recipients Name],
Thank you for the beautiful painting you gifted me on my birthday.
I have mounted it on the wall in the living room, and it just brightens the whole place. It almost feels like the characters in the painting are real and transcends to real people.
Every time I look at it, I feel good. Thank you once again.

Further things to consider when writing gift letters to friends
Gift letters are letters you write to appreciate or say thank you when someone gives you a gift. Whether it is a birthday, Christmas, or business gift, the best way to show appreciation is by crafting a gift letter. There are many scenarios for when you might want to thank someone for a gift, especially if the gift was unexpected. May be it is a gift in the form of goods or services. Perhaps it is in the form of money. It is always a great gesture to show gratitude for a gift you have received. Gift letters should be sent as soon as possible after the gift has been received.
Perfect Gift letters should be brief and straight to the point. Start the letter by thanking the recipient for the gift and then add a warm thought like "You are the best." Mention the gift, how important it is to you, and explain what you are going to do with it or how you have benefited from it. Clearly let the recipient know how much you appreciate his/her gesture. End on a happy note and mention the next time you hope to talk to the recipient.
Letters to Friends
Letters to friends are letters you write to people with whom you have a bond of mutual affection. These letters are like conversations and can be just about anything. They could be thank-you letters to thank your friends, congratulation letters to congratulate them, apology letters to say sorry, condolence letters to comfort the bereaved, etc. You could also write to your friends to share general information such as school and family news, what has been happening in your town, or just tell funny stories. Letters are special and show the other person that you are thinking about him/her. The recipient can keep the letters for years and read them over and over again.
Letters to friends are personal and are usually addressed to specific individuals. Since the recipient is a person with whom you have a close relationship, the salutation is more personal and less formal. Greet the recipient warmly and proceed to stating the reason for your letter. Share some information about yourself. Maintain a polite and friendly tone. End your letter on a note of anticipation to seeing the recipient soon or reading from him/her. You can also add a postscript for something you forgot to say.
