What’s this then, you may wonder. Appreciation of what by whom? Terrill Welch, a blog-writer on Mayne Island, British Columbia, recently had her life-work, along with several of her stunning nature paintings, featured at another website. Two other bloggers were inspired by her work as well. Reflecting on these reverberations, Terrill now poses what she calls a sprouting question: “What is your favourite story about someone who has admired your work?” What a splendid question! For me to answer it will require dropping some bashfulness. Many of us are conditioned not to ‘blow our own horn’ but the question runs much deeper: How has someone else admired what you do?
