The First Groundhog Day by 

Sony Cyber Shot DSC H3
July 2011
Punxsutawney Pennsylvania

I toured one of the historical homes in this quaint little town and this was a photograph of the very first groundhog day celebration back in the early 1900’s. Not much has changed really, the mayor pulls ol’ Punxsy Phil out of his hole every early morning on Feb. 2nd to foretell the beginning of spring.

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.
