Great title, and a very enjoyable read. If I were highly critical, I'd say the excellence of the beginning wasn't quite sustained through the rest of the piece. But a very satisfying enjoyable read.
Beautiful story! The one paragraph about Sarah catching the vision, right after her grandmother told her of it, didn't seem to go with the rest of the story, but otherwise this is a great entry!
I really enjoyed this story, and thought it fit the topic so well. This isn't a criticism, but an observation. I think that YOU (the granddaughter) ranked in grandma's top three loves!

I enjoyed this piece from beginning to end! I loved it! And how like God to use the God given talent to fullfill a God given vision.
As the granddaughter of an artist, I enjoyed this tremendously! Well written piece and enjoyable read!

Your short paragraphs are very effective at directing your reader to feel what your narrator felt. This is extremely well-written.
I don't often get choked up while reading challenge entries, but I have to admit that as I read your last line I felt a lump in my throat. This is a powerful story and very well told. The fact that the vision wasn't realized until after your grandmother's death makes it even more poignant. Wow - that's all I can say.
This is so beautiful Sue. Congrats on the win! Well deserved.

Keep writing for the glory of HIM!

CONGRATULATIONS!
A great story Sue and a well-deserved win. The title was "visionary" if I might be so bold! and the ending was perfect although it came too soon. I really wanted to read more. Congratulations. May God continue to bless your writing as He blesses those who read it.
