Shawn Jarrar's graduation party

Mom takes my picture as I get ready for the party...

Can you tell I'm excited? By the way, Mom did my hair and make-up. Thanks Mom.

Allison passes out the cake to a grateful crowd at the "SHAWN IS AWESOME" club, graduation event.
With so much delicious food, she had all of us ready to pass out.

Jenine did her part to see that everyone was well fed.

A quiet moment as Bill Sam and Harry enjoy the festivities. Bill and Sam were impressive as they managed to eat only the "healthy" food. Healthy being defined as anything within a 100 foot radius of their seat.

Harry Gore was entertaining as always.

As the sun retreats, the party goes on.
Harry and Shawn do an impromptu jam. It is awesome!

Shawn poses with the portrait that I did as a gift. He was very pleased with it.

Look at that happy smile. You look good Sam!

Dad did a portrait demonstration all day yesterday. He worked on a portrait of our good friend Bill Bangham.

played havoc with the chalk pastels, chased dad inside. He completed the piece from the air conditioned comfort of the Daily Grind.

Me in black and white

I am the girl in the light.
I am also the girl in the shadow.
My world is a place of open doors and easy greetings from the many friends.
My world is a place of hills to climb and obstacles to avoid.
I am stronger than I know.
I will surpass endurance.
I will surprise.

Super Sarah

My friend Sarah during the recent Donald Coles concert at Daily Grind.
She is lovely from every angle.
