I am blessed to have a good friend who is a tremendous artist. I’m blessed because she’s amazing in many ways….but, that could be a post for another day. For this post’s purposes, I’m blessed because she agreed to paint a very special piece for me. I had seen that she was working on a new technique. She had painted a piece of her son swimming under water…and it was gorgeous. I immediately knew that I wanted to ask her a favor.
Last April we traveled to Mexico and spent a wonderful day out sport fishing in Puerto Adventuras. At one point the captain pulled up to a small island and let us snorkel off its coast. While snorkeling, I captured an underwater photo of my boys swimming with a turtle. It was such a special little moment and a photo that I’ve treasured ever since. I sent it to Paula and asked if she’d be willing to paint it.
The end result took my breath away. It actually takes my breath away each time I look at it. It encapsulates a moment of my boys’ childhoods that I’d like to freeze forever. It is vibrant…and it is beautiful. It is absolutely perfect…exquisite really, in my opinion. I find myself staring at it every single day. I can not thank Paula Morgan enough.
