Gold Santa

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 12 December 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

This Woodland Santa walks through the moonlit snow spreading treats and warming good cheer to all wildlife. Birds, rabbits and chipmunks surround him as the mischievous squirrel helps himself to a nut from Santa’s satchel. We can imagine from Santa’s face that this quiet stop gives him as much joy as filling each child’s stocking.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
