I really enjoy creating different versions of the same image or concept.  I think this one speaks for itself.  These images grew out of my youngest child’s toddlerhood, as I witnessed daily the influences that her father and I had on her.  Sage grew like a plant, rooted in the soil of her family, sprouting from our genes, shaped by her environment and the care she received.  It was, and still is, amazing to behold.

These three images are all available as posters and cards.  I think two of the originals are still in my possession, too.

Wishing all my readers a beautiful new year – and peaceful family dynamics.
