"Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea?" mused the Creator (2 Nephi 29:7). Gathering shells from Alabama, Florida, and Mexico, Stroud placed over 25,000 to create this portrait. No shell is forgotten and each contributes to the whole.

"It’s comforting to know that the Lord has not and will not forget us."
