Honu ‘ea - Did you know that five of the seven species of turtles worldwide make their home in Hawaii? The Hawksbill turtle (Honu ’ea) is one of them. Isn’t she lovely! While the real Honu’ea turtle doesn’t have pink in their color, I included pink in my painting. Why? My lovely bride, Heather, my gift from God, was born in Hawaii. She made her entrance into the world at the only pink hospital in the world; Tripler Hospital, Waikiki Beach. Every day with her I thank the good Lord for the gift He gave me in her. As an expression of my gratitude. I include pink in every piece of my work. Some pieces have a simple stroke while others a splash. When a grateful heart is at the core of our relationship with our Heavenly Father the overflow of that love spills into our relationship with others. May our love for both be a big as the sea!
Heather’s Life Verse: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2
