Something different. Haven't done portraits before. Intend to try other subjects, themes and techniques this year. Here goes with a portrait of daughter Deidre. She lights up a room when she enters, may her smile and love of life brighten your day as well.
My dear sister Monica succumbed yesterday after a valiant and inspirational 12 year battle with cancer. She was one of the happiest, bravest and sweetest persons I've known. She just turned 46. A truly bright light has gone out of our world. May she rest in peace, knowing she is much loved and missed.
I generally don't share much personal family information on flickr. But those of you seeing this are flickr family now so thought I'd explain my absence for the past week and for the immediate future.
Your friendship does comfort me thru this sad time.
