Yesterday attempting to perfect my photography skills, I asked my beautiful daughter to pose for me. She is a single mom & elementary teacher doing a wonderful job raising her kids and making a life for herself and her boys. I’m very proud of her.

I’m basically a self taught artist who has flirted with painting and drawing throughout my life, however, due to circumstances, until recently, I had to put that aspect of myself on the back burner.
Not long ago I discovered photo-manipulation which led to an interest in photography. And here I am today having a ball learning and enjoying the process of creating. And even though I strive to improve constantly; to me it’s about the journey not the destination.
