Here I go... I Love David! lol - I do and he knows it! I tell him monthly at least - lol in e-mail and FB messages.
When did I meet David? It was before the first EXPO and it was at an event, put on by a new Cannabis awareness event/club. Instantly - I liked David! His smile! His enthusiasm for life an his Faith in God & in Cannabis was obvious all around! I had a little table set up and we talked about Storm and Cannabis. Our photo below - we have both 'grown' quite a bit in 5 years I think. I next met David again at the first TY EXPO we shared! He was there with his glass & so it began. My introduction into the glass world!
*Remember at the TY medical Cannabis EXPO - I had no time to socialize - let alone go around looking and learning about glass, it was where I was (thankfully) introduced to a world on new art and artists! I'm pleased to thank God for putting David on a path that has taken me where I had no concept... as I sit here and touch (close to my heart, mentally & physically) my Laughing Buddha pendant, Jerry Kelly created. I alter that with my Zen Kitty pendant by Stephen Boehme! - Which is guarded by my 'mighty hippo' when not wearing. Storm pointed out " you have the coolest jewelry of anyone I know!" Me too! I agree. LOL That and my promise of Love from Norm ;) I always wear. hee hee hee
Wow! Close to my <3 and I have David to thank - he introduced & arranged for Jerry and Stephen & I to work together. This is why David still does not have an original. lol
It has to be special. It has to be one that says this is for David. * ALSO - it is the only time some said 'hold a piece of art work' and someone else really begged/bugged me - and I let it go. That was David! I still feel bad about it ( I will make it up to him)- clearly he forgave me it was long before all of this. That is David. < He WILL forgive you and he will mean it! & you will know he does.
David is a millie glass artist as well! lol - Im so impressed with David the person I almost forget about David the artist ;) UNTIL I see what he is doing- some he won't show me!! I want to know what happened to the puppet- do you think he will answer my e mail? I'm smiling.
From what I gather his speciality is black and white- it has a clean crisp signature- again I'm amazed at he level of talent to be able to create in glass, many have difficulty with on paper! I recently drew him a few little ideas - I hope he makes them, they made us giggle. He made a 'Wilma' that Fred would go bonkers over! Me too - lol. What stands out about David in my mind above his glass is his love for others and positive attitude and never ending display of compassion and patience for others- lol - just watch his FB page. He puts it to the test all the time and I love it!
Oh! He also - I recently discovered (God has a way of showing me things when I NEED to see them) ha quite the talent for writing as I discovered in some back issues of a glass magazine - I'm only now getting around to reading! A man of many talents.
He inspires me to be a better person.
Storm and I have quite a on going joke at the moment and he teases me- David said he sent something - well I've learned these glass guys - are like... me - LOL! We ask - 'whats your address?' and then - WAIT...It's not intentional it is a fact and I understand it. We are creative, busy and doing 'it' all. David had a contest a while back - I did not get my mille slice :( - I didn't blame David - it was not the first item I have no received- I blogged about it before - I'm having trouble with the postal service. Stuff is going missing! We were discussing it as a family last night. What do you do? I replaced the lock!? Who do you call?
*Say Ghost busters and I might poke you in the eye! Blame? Ask? Lost in transit?
& Health Canada wants us to get our medicine like this?
So, David said he mailed something, I remind Storm to check the mail and he said - "I don't know about David..." (with a smirk on his face) -Storm agrees with me... David is one of the nicest people we know. BTW - he really did just check - no mail! good! I just want to wish David Happy Birthday! I am so happy he is is my life. He makes me smile.
He is also a Jesus Fan. <>< ! Or should I say... Yes! Yeshua ! Hee hee hee - couldn't resist. ;)
Have a peek at some of Davids work below. Did you read the blog, about the time I lost the glass slice he gave me -TWICE!? - LOL - So Forgiving!
