But more than that (and the reason I'm sharing this with you) he is an artist. And I wanted you to see his work and read his story. I hope they don't mind my doing so.
As soon as I read the email, I went straight to his website to have a look. I don't know what I was expecting, really. But it wasn't what I saw.
And the peonies. Delicate, feathery, barely pink. Stunning.
It's inspiring to see a person whose art is their livelihood. Someone who fulfills their passion every day. And makes something beautiful for all of us to enjoy.
Have a look. See for yourself. Tell him what you think.
What is your passion? Do you fulfill it a little bit every day?
