Paul C. Dennis Gallery http://www.paulcdennis.com/apps/photos/ Paul C. Dennis Gallery Basket of Roses "Stop and smell the roses" is a well known saying. I often look at my roses in my flower garden as I hurry off to work and am always delighted to see a new bud ready to bloom. I promise myself that I will take a moment to study it later, but usually miss its majestic, silent beauty while caring for the details of life. In "Basket of Roses" I have preserved that moment for you and now you can enjoy it over and over. "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."

We were able to sit in the cockpit and the bomber's seat of one they had taken the engines out of. When it flew over our school in those day, we just stopped teaching due to all the noise it made.

As I grew up, I admired and tried to emulate him. His support of my parents as missionaries in Africa and his faithfulness to family and church set an example for us all. I remember one day when my dad came home with his old work boots. My older brother and I each took turns owning and wearing them. They did not quite fit me, but I wore them with pride. They eventually found their place in the back of the closet. One day, in high school, I decided to preserve their memory in an oil painting. Grandma loved this painting, and for years it proudly hung on her wall. "Grandpa's Boots" is now published for you as a reminder of a life well spent and is a motivation to all of us to invest well for the future.

Mitchell and Margaret Henry spent their honeymoon there in the 1850's and years later Mitchell bought the land and built this castle as a romantic gift for his wife. More recently, Fred and Betty Hann, a former mayor of Lancaster, CA, and members of our church, visited it and asked me to paint it for them. Since then, Fred has now gone to be with the Lord and in his memory I have hidden their initials in the painting. Today he is enjoying the mansion Jesus promised him in heaven.

As winter receded and spring emerged, the seasoned farmer looked to this machine as an important part of his preparation for planting the crops. The performance of its seasonal task had a lot to do with the quality of the next harvest. Today it is only a memory of its productive past.

After many shipwrecks and much loss of life it was built in 1872. It was one of the most powerful lighthouses of its time with a light that would pierce through the fog and could be seen seventeen to twenty-two miles out to sea. It was built with over half a million locally made bricks and stands 115 feet tall. Today it stands as a reminder to all of us to make a difference in our world.
