Looking out my grandmothers window, there was a Japanese magnolia tree that was the first to bloom each spring and it has become one of my favorite flowers.

This is Karley. In the original snapshot she is putting on mr. potato head sunglasses but I took the outline and made a prayer portrait of her.

He is #6 in my mini-portrait series.  I ventured away from sepia and black and white to do a blue value study.  Love those eyes

She is #5 in my mini-portrait series. She is in my sunday school class and always has that sweet smile when she comes in the door.

This is #4 of my mini-portrait series, I though I would give black and white a try but I am not that crazy about it,  Josie came out cute, but the background needs help. She is one the babies that I keep in the nursery at church. This is the look she gives me when I pick her up and speak to her, very funny.
