"Girl Feeding Hen"


He did it again. This photograph of a painting by Chris Opperman came by email. The girl is Maria, the hen is Betty, and once again Chris has left us amazed, and teary-eyed. And thankful... I am so happy he reached out to us last summer, that he is painting, and sharing his beautiful work with us.

If you have not read about Chris Opperman, please follow this link to my November 22, 2009 post about Chris and his paintings.

Wow, what an amazing photo and gift! It's beautiful. And even more amazing to read about the artist and that he paints with his mouth.

What a wonderful gift - and what an amazing thing, that our paths can cross with such amazing people via the Internet. My mom and I have a regular debate about whether technology separates people or brings them closer together - you have shared an example of how a wonderful blog, written by a special woman who takes beautiful photos, touched the life of someone living in very different circumstances in a different part of the world, who in turn reached out and touched you and all the rest of us. Magical.
