"Life and our whole existence is such a poetic phenomenon.
To be utterly in love with existence and life is very uplifting and wisdom is really a song."

Gerard Henderson passed away on August 2, 2014. We are looking for the present owners of his paintings, drawings and creations. We need high-resolution photos as we are trying to catalogue his work and possibly include some in his upcoming book.
