Zoom in on Gratitude: 30 day challenge

HANDS


My great-nephew Brian started sharing his artistic talents with the family somewhere around 1990.  One year when we were gathered at Christmas, I saw a picture he had drawn of a hand.  I was absolutely blown away.  Keep in mind he was a very young teenager at the time.  
I wanted such a picture for myself, one I could take home; this is the one I received.  it hung on my refrigerator for months before I finally tucked it away between the pages of my journal.  
These days Brian uses that talent to support himself and his family.

LOVE art and the artists who create it. I can see why you liked this piece. It is very interesting. There is alot of talent displayed in that picture. I am glad he is making a living using this gift he was born with. My younger daughter is an awesome artist too, but she has totally abandoned it. So sad. I really enjoyed this post. TAKE CARE.

Great talent indeed. There's nothing better than making a living doing something you love.
