Sorry I'm late with mine...I used my mom and dad's wedding photo. They married as he was preparing to deploy to Italy on board ship during World War II. I wanted to use some of his poetry he wrote to her while on board ship, but it is so very faded, I didn't want to expose it as it's written in pencil, too. I can barely read it as it is, and not sure how to preserve what's left!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
