Why I am a late bloomer?
Had I bloomed earlier in my life, my blossom would not be nearly as colorful.
In the 80's when my sons were little I was a self taught videographer, I did a couple of weddings as side jobs, but most of my taping was done of my children and their friends, making home movies of their plays and musicals. I entered the corporate world after that and put down my video camera.
In the 90's I picked up a paint brush and some tempera paints. Creating a few gifts for family and friends , I mainly painted because it brought me joy.
The new millenium brought me a daughter and a new career as a portrait photographer, a career I could do part time while raising my daughter. I gleened alot of knowledge from the handful of studios I worked for over these last several years.
Now, in the second decade of the 21st century, I have found a way to combine 2 of my passions, photography and painting. "Portrait Impressions " is original photography, digital art, printed on canvas and hand embellished with acrylic paint.
I love how you have brought your passions together and made it into your own style Connie. Beautiful work.ReplyDelete

I believe that your the whole of your life experiences lead you to where you are, the journey is continuous. Looking back on your life is always amazing, how things all work together to bring you to the present moment. I am always inspired by that and try to look forward to whatever the future may hold. The best is yet to come!Delete
