Mean Irene by Jane Brack

Currently unavailable for purchase

Taking a much needed break from the beatings of strong waves on the North Carolina shore, Topsail Island. Hurricane Irene paid us a visit the next day and we were evacuated. Oh well. My poor little girl! It was tough out there, battling the angry ocean, but we had fun, despite Mean Irene!

    I’m so glad to hear that you are ok, Jane (and of course, your family, too). This is such a sweet picture of your daughter… Look at those long eyelashes!! she’s a beautiful little lady! I bet you were glad to get back home! hugs!

  • Thanks for your lovely comments Barbara! Oh, how I’d love to have those lashes! Yes, we made it home safe and sound. The heavy downpours that we’re having this week are just as bad, if not worse, than Irene’s! This weather has been crazy! Hugs back atcha and thanks again!

    Congrats on your featured work! My sis lives in Newbern, NC they had now power for several days and finally got a backup generator! Great portrait here (-: Mean Irene!! Kids are pretty darn tough!!

  • Yes, kids definitely are tough! She really took a beating and was ready for the pool after being out there for several hours. Ha! I think when I took this, she was whining about wanting to go to the pool. She had enough at this point. :) Glad your sister finally got her power back! What a nightmare for her!

    So glad you all are safe. I was thinking and praying for you all during that time. Awesome capture!!

  • Thanks JR! It was unfortunate but could have been much worse! There was not as much damage on the shore as they’d predicted. People were very relieved. Thanks for the compliment!
