600th post – The Art of Jesse – Alkimia

I’ve been waiting for a special moment to show you a special art piece that I was given. And what better moment that the celebration of my 600th post.

The very talented artist and my dear friend Jesse, from The Art of Jesse, has created and sent me this fierce painting as a special gift. More, he allowed me to name it.

I must say I felt very touched, grateful and happy. I even danced the Happy Dance with Happy Feet when it arrived.

When I unwrapped the package and I saw it, the first word that came to my mind was "alquimia", the Portuguese word for alchemy.
Alchemy transforms a normal thing into gold, which means changing something without value in a very valuable thing.
That's how I see this painting, two halves joining and changing in a value thing, a heart. (Not a broken heart)

So I named it "Alkimia"!!!

Thank you so much my dear friend Jesse, words are failing to thank you.
I wish you all the best and may the Universe be with you!!!!!

Namasté Jesse!
