Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

  • Thanks very much, Maureen! And thanks for adding the sample – I got pulled away (kicking and screaming – just kidding!) and didn’t get back to it. :)) I have about 4 versions of this image and couldn’t decide which was best. It makes me happy that you like it! :))
