Home sweet home

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

I am enjoying working at home and not being on the road…although I really really miss my friends and talking “in person” to treasured customers. However, I have been working on my studio, getting it organized for the next round of new pictures. I am also working on a project for a recent high school graduate. I am incorporating many of his interests and experiences into the picture. It is a challenge but fun.

This Saturday February 12th!
