open letter to an art teacher

Thank you for opening my eyes to art and composition,
for showing me the subtlety of colour,
and inspiring me with artists who work at moving paint poetically across a canvas.
My appreciation has evolved and become slightly clearer, but I will always remember it's humble beginnings filled with curiosity and perhaps trepidation.
I continue to be inspired by my environment as it gently wraps itself around me.
From beautiful photographic images that expose a tender soul to subtle street art curiously pasted to a cold brick wall.
Creativity and all that it encompasses is a treasure to behold.
So thank you once again for sharing your appreciation, for it permeates my soul.


  1. Ahhh, now that makes it all worthwhile...Merci Beaucoup.

  2. How fortunate we were to encounter, at just the right time, such a gifted and wild-eyed educator. He lived it. And he was a bit naughty.

  3. He was wild-eyed naughty boy in the early years - gifted, ambitious and angry with it.

    Not me. My teacher!
