Family Tree



I had this boring photo mat laying around which at one time was intended for photo collages the way they were popular several years ago.  I decided to turn it into a family tree. So, here is my family tree. Click on the picture for a larger image of the "tree".


Back in November...


I mentioned a drawing my sister did for me. I finally framed it and it is now hanging in my living room. I took the photo from an angle to avoid the glare from the glass and I tried very hard to get a close-up of those fascinating eyes but nothing can do justice to the original... Little Sister, I am so proud of you!




A white Christmas but not for me :(

My sister is the lucky one! And she had to rub it in by sending these pictures! Oh well..... I love her anyway ;)
This is her house in the snow. Just a little over a year ago, on a sunny September morning, we sat on the bench by her front door enjoying our morning coffee.


















And here is the view from her patio. I am so jealous!

Fatherhood - next step

Darkening the skin tones and the cap, filling in a light blue layer for the grey t-shirt and pale peach for the baby blanket. I am not happy with the picture, but after several attempts this is the best one of all. I just didn't have enough natural light.



Christmas Lights.... underdone



The way I like it...
