Art and Heroes – A Morning of Goosebumps and Amazement

Some things just defy explanation. Just accept them and go forward.

This morning on my break I was on what I call a Twitter thank you binge. What I do is instead of just sharing someone’s Twitter handle with the words thank you or just their Twitter handle saying “follow this great person” or something of the like, I Tweet their profile blurb.

So as I’m going through my newest followers, I come upon the most amazing and mind blowing thing!

My favorite modern impressionist artist, whose painting “A Farewell to Anger” has been the background on my writing laptop for over year, followed me on Twitter!

I didn’t even know he had a Twitter account.

I didn’t know he had an Etsy.

I didn’t know he had a Facebook.

All I knew was his art is so moving and colorful and it pulls you in and lights up your heart.

I’m proud to share with you, the amazing…
