I was just looking through all of your gold wins just now, Renee, and I recognize so many of them. We go back a long way now and they brought back fun memories of our gallery visits to each other!

These carnival people images are so amazing and unique! And that smoke effect? WOW!!!!!!!!

For Being A Fantastic Artist and Photographer! I'm honored to know you!
