From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.

This image is a bit of a departure from the norm for me today. A couple of days ago, I went out into Essex County to this lovely lady's home, to do a portrait of her. I had wanted to do this for a long while, as she sits across from me at our monthly Irish Music sessions at the Sportsman's Club on Dougall Ave. here in Windsor. She enjoys playing all of the old time tunes, and we all enjoy her music. After the usual photo editing of the RAW file, I decided to give Corel's Painter Essentials 5 a whirl. It is fairly new software to me yet, so this rendition is far from perfect I'm sure. At any rate, personally, I find it somewhat appropriate for what I had in mind. Hope you enjoy my rendition of "Karen" today.....
