LOVE this! How true it is!
The artist, Stephen Huneck, died in January of 2010 from suicide. He had a near death experience a few years before and had to learn to learn how to walk and write again. Luckily his artistic ability wasn’t lost. It makes me so sad to know that while his artwork was making others (like me) smile, inside he was tormented by a mental illness. My heart goes out to his widow, Gwen, and his three dogs who were the inspiration behind his work.
You can learn more about Stephen on his website, Dog Mountain.
