Sony Cyber Shot DSC H3
June 2011

I decided to grab my camera and take a walk around the property last night to see if I could find something different. As I was watching my dog I stopped and I’m not who was more surprised, me or this baby ground hog who was standing right in front of me!
This is dedicated to Punxsy Phil for Groundhog Day this Sunday. I sure hope he makes the right prediction this year!!!

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.
