Carl, my husband is such a big softie when it comes to the animals at the fair. He especially loves the horses and this one in particular seemed to really enjoy his company. At one point it even laid his head on his shoulder. I am thankful to be able to witness and capture these tender moments.
Dedicated to the love between humans and animals.

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.
