“I have dreamed a dream, and now that dream has gone from me”
Morpheus – The Matrix

Self portrait as a genie escaping to fulfill a dream outside the bottle.

Canon 7D and G12 with various settings. Photomanipulation with multiple layers in PS Elements. Bottle and smoke effect was captured on-camera using a wiggly string and long exposure. Final cropping and coloring in PS Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.
