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

AN ARTIST BLESSING One of my treasures in life is having artistic and interesting grand kids. Having grand kids made my life more fresh and alive. When I see the world through their eyes, I feel younger. I am delighted that my two grand kids were there at my art show and birthday celebration.
SIMON This photo was taken during the set up at the clubhouse. At eleven years old Simon is a big help and amazingly strong like his idol, Spider man.ALA VINCENT VAN GOGH AND FRIDA KHALO To make my art show more festive, fun and interesting, Simon dressed up like Vincent and Audrey like Frida. Their costumes were hand made by Boodgie a fashion designer from San Diego. AUDREY She's a good copycat of Frida Kahlo during the art show. Her contrasting red and green Mexican-style dress, hibiscus red flower and lovely smile made her stunningly more beautiful. Audrey is an aspiring artist too.

SIMON He's a good copycat of Vincent Van Gogh. This contrasting costume-in yellow top and purple pant reminded me of Vincent. One of his favorite color combinations.
VINCENT VAN GOGH Resurrected during my art show.? SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!
SIMON SMILING He has a different personality from Van Gogh. He is a happy boy and someday he dreams of becoming a great artist too.
ORIGAMI DEMO BY SIMON AND AUDREY Origami is a popular Japanese paper art. They entertained some of my guest by doing origami art like boat, bird and fan. "Thank God for their artistic talents."

AUDREY READING HER POEM "BLUE" In the past I featured her on my blog. About a year ago, she wrote this poem and it was published at the San Francisco Chronicle. She was only 8 years old. A very talented poet too. My grandkids made my day. I couldn't imagine my life without them.
