A Message of Endless Love

{Glass Bottle}


$295 • 6x6 oil

The coastal regions spill out its produce. Each treasure bears a testimony of hardship, yet after being tossed about at sea and ground by the sand, beauty defiantly emerges.

So it is with our own lives.


The force of heartache and difficulty perfect us and bring about character qualities we could not come by any other way. As we are tossed about in uncertainty, we quickly learn whom we can hold onto for stability. When we lose our footing and get lost, our focus narrows to the important things in life. When painfully rough events continue to wound us, it smooths out our character making room for empathy and grace toward others.


There is no peaceful place in life that will yield the same work that difficulty can.

So, blessed is the place of waves and sand for only after we survive can we enjoy the treasures.

For many years, traveling to Sanibel and Captiva Islands was our family tradition. Vacationing there was timed directly after hurricanes to benefit from the storm bringing in shells from deeper regions. We'd wake up before sunrise and cross a heavy current while the tide went out in order to go shelling. We'd slosh and sometimes loose our sneakers in the suction of the heavy mud on sandbars to dig out fragile Angel Wings and spy Whelk egg sacks. Sometimes my Mother would sit for hours under the bridge connecting both islands to dig through six inches of pure miniature shells - her favorite finds. Those were the days. Many of the shells displayed here are from our shelling adventures to Sanibel, Bimini and also Pompano Beaches. As you enjoy the paintings, may you reminisce about your own times at the shoreline.
