When it came time for Mr. RockFord Orvin’s painting the creative challenge and invitation dazzled my palette.
My first mixed media on wood. Watercolor, pastel & colored pencil.
This project, I had started several years prior, as part of my spiritual healing. I didn’t know it would be for him. Or that I'd be returning favor to a best friend who continually blesses others with gifts of art. He's always making original pieces for other people.
I knew this was divine intervention.
I wondered if he had ever been gifted an original piece.
When he opened his present he gasped and covered his mouth with one hand. I could see it in his eyes. I felt it in our hearts. He'd been touched by the student.
Thanks for teaching me so much about painting RockFord!
