I found this wonderful antique gas pump outside of an antique shop in Reynoldsville Pennsylvania. To think that gas went from about 25 cents a gallon to whatever they feel it’s worth on today’s market, it jumps that much in one week!

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.
