REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS! (Philippians 4:4)
These 3 young ladies are my granddaughters, ages 15, 21, and 19. This is one of their last summer flings on the beach before returning back to school. The one on the right goes off to college in Washington state this weekend. The painting I just finished this week will go with her to remember this joyful day with her sister and cousin in Blue Hawaii.
By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

My beautiful granddaughter, Tay.
Last summer she paddled with a canoe club. In her senior year in school she’s involved with Bible study and music ministry playing the guitar and leading in singing, and Tay dances worship hula. Her special hula halau/troupe is busy performing for special events and holiday concerts. This active 17 year old, soon turning 18, became a vegan a few months ago and chronicles her experiences learning how to eat and live healthier. She shares her dairy on food prep, recipes and photos of her meals, weight loss, among other things. Half of our family members are vegetarians and now two are vegan. See her blogsite at:
You may discover hidden talents like I did when I learned to draw from Nolan and Dennis Clark. They have an art school in New Zealand and offer many on-line art classes at paintbasket.com.
Some of my drawings are posted here:
