Granny looks to be about twenty in this photograph

I ran across this picture today. I love it. Several years ago I made a large art piece with colored variations of this photo.

Maybe that's why I was drawn to it today. I am finally beginning the real work of making the art work for the art exhibition Lucy Blankstein and I are sharing in February.

Spent the day playing with Photoshop. I tell you no matter how many times I use the magnetic cropping tool it continues to make me feel like I am working with my feet.
Now to settle down and really start some serious - playing - oh, I mean work.

Artists are so lucky - our play is our work.
