Immediately after she received the artwork, her mood changed as she smiled broadly in overwhelming happiness.
Speaking to Legit.ng on the artwork, David said his joy comes from making his subjects happy.
When asked if he gets paid by his subjects, he said money is not everything. His words:
"I’ve never felt bad, not for once, for not being paid. Everything isn’t about money! Making people happy is a blessing, and I believe Mother Nature has its way of rewarding people. Sometimes people call me from abroad to appreciate my work, and some send money as a gift."
