One significant location was Hawaii where a creative vein blossomed into the committed hobbies of oil/watercolor painting, fine jewelry & craftwork for the remainder of her life. She loved painting the crashing waves of the North Shore and collecting shells or large corals to make candles & necklaces. The islands calming beauty remained in her heart.
