" A family that plays, paints, praises, and prays together, stays
together."- Evelyne D. Resella

A FAMILY BLESSING It's true that a family who is always together in every worthwhile activities, stays together. Without my family, my dream to have at least ONE SOLO ART SHOW in my lifetime wouldn't be a possibility. I deeply appreciate my family-children, grand kids and husband, for their endless love and support toward my goal and dream in life. I am always proud of them and would like to express my sincere thanks and love openly. I have said my thanks before but I'd like it to be seen and written here.
THE ARTIST WITH DAUGHTER, JOY "Thanks for your love and help during my celebration. You're a wonderful and thoughtful daughter."
JOY AND RODNEY During the celebration there was a short program in my honor.
RODNEY My eldest son gave a touching speech about his perspective on having an artistic mom.
"Thank you Rodney for that deeply moving and loving speech. You made me teary-eyed. "
ROBIN During his visual presentation of my thirteen brand new oil paintings.
"Robin, thank you so much for that wonderful visual presentation about my paintings. I know you're extremely busy but you still did it for me."

I AM SORRY THAT I DON'T HAVE ANY PHOTO OF MY SON RYAN. BUT I'D LIKE TO SAY MY THANKS AGAIN. "Ryan, thank you for the many beautiful photos you took during my art show. The photos spoke volumes, better than I could express my self."
MY HUSBAND RHOD He talked about "BACK TO THE FUTURE-1943" What an amazing year to be alive. Prices were so cheap. Prices: Gasoline $.16. Postage $0.03. House $8,011.00, etc.
"Rhod, a million thanks again for everything you did for me. This beautiful art show wouldn't have succeeded without you. "
"A wonderful thanks to my family, relatives and friends who were there for me and made this celebration unforgettable."
"My thanks to my grand kids for inspiring me. They are one of my joys in life."

NEXT POST, I will show case my grand kids.
