Port du Cœur

This little one is for someone very special to me. Five years ago, just about the time I started painting, I was assigned to be the case manager of one of the purest hearted, most loving, most determined, beautiful girls in the world. Her name is LaShuna and she has been one of my biggest encouragers along my artistic journey. Several terms I have been blessed to have her in my first period class and to be greeted by her brilliant, lovely smile the first thing in the morning. When I post a new painting (especially if it has a lot of pink in it)LaShuna is usually the first to say, " I love this one!" I've always promised her a painting for her graduation present, but I just can't wait any longer. Together, we've looked over all my work, and I've tried to include all the bits and details and colors she's pointed out to me. I hope you like this one, sweetie, because it was painted with you in that special place in my heart that will always be yours. (for Inspiration Avenue and Paint Party Friday)
