It’s quirky, but Heather’s enthusiasm is infectious, and I soon fell in love with its blobs and flamboyant curlicues. This is my exemplar.

    All my life I have been blessed to view the evidence of your artistic flair, I need no confirmation of this to be convinced of your obvious gifts in these areas. This is just a natural and beautiful development of the gifts that area already there. And it is a beautiful thing to behold, brother.
