The Gift of Love


Today at my door, the most beautiful surprise was waiting for me. An exquisite painting by the artist Jeanne-Ming of Wu Feng Road. The painting to me feels autobiographical, surprising me in her capacity for reading human nature. I believe even the little bird "fleeting joy" has landed on the tea kettle. If you turn the painting around, she has even written a story on the back. It is without a doubt an honor to own a piece by this artist whom I have admired from afar. Thank you dear Jeanne Ming, you have touched my heart in more ways than you will ever know. We will treasure it always.
