Orlando, the painter

Orlando, what an amazing human. I can only use one word to describe him, Genius. Last year he was drawing with pencils and pens and a British lady bought him oil paints and canvasses. With no formal training and an imagination that creates most of what he sees he sits next to my hostel and works on his craft daily. The Hostel I am staying in just agreed to put up some of his work in their restaurant for 15 days. I helped him set up and gave him a few presents I thought he would enjoy. A new sweatshirt, a small buddha incense holder from Thailand and a picture of my cabin on Bowyer Island in Canada.
