I decided to paint this picture of my grandfather and give it to him for his 90th birthday. When I gave it to him, he was so proud. I didn't do it for him to be proud of me. I did it because I loved him and show him my love through my brush. But, to see his reaction I wouldn't exchange for all the money in the world. He loved my painting. However, I knew he loved me more. That day would be the last day I would see my grandpa this side of heaven. He died a few short days later. But God in His loving mercy gave me a gift in return, a forever image of my grandfather permanently etched in my mind of that beautiful day.
Until we see each other again Grandpa!!!
