In 2010, I painted this “Pelican Portrait” specifically for a benefit for a wonderful Port O’Connor woman battling cancer. I remember being so pleased with the finished piece that I wanted to keep it for myself, for a second. I knew that God had wanted me to give my best and that’s what I had to do.
Several years later, the one who bought the piece in the auction brought it to me to hang in my office. I am grateful that I can now share this blue eyed pelican with you! Oh, how God works in mysterious ways. ~Dawn Ragusin
