Ok so I took another stab at the graphic art thing. I have to admit I like what I am doing. It's not unusual as I usually like, but it is satisfying to create these images from photos that I set up take and edit. Creativety comes in all forms. I want to transform these images to canvas and free form paint on them.

Today was an interesting day to say the least. I was contacted by a gentleman who is on the board of the San Antonio Fiesta Commitee. Apparantly he has seen some of my work, and is interested in having me submit an original piece for consideration in the 2009 San antonio for the Arts foundation's Annual Poster. I worked on this all day. In typical fashion I did it quickly. Not too quickly though. It's the first time I have done something like This. I have a friend named Candy Flores, who graciously and, at last minute allowed me to photograph her. This is what I came up with. It is an original photograph digitaly manipilated into what I think is a striking image. I really got into this and plan to do more of it!

My friends, I must say with heartfelt joy that we as a people of this great land have spoken, all at once we shouted from the top of our voices WE CAN! I sat tonight a humble participant of a process I doubted...and yet a silent figure took my heart by storm.. A figure not of a newly elected beacon of hope. You see I sat tonight with a visage of human strength. A rock beyond comprehension. I sat with my mother, barely able to move, and yet she sat there with strength beyond my own bodies comprehension. I watched her shed tears for a new generation, not her own. I felt in my own heart a sense of new found duty. A duty to serve and make a change. Make a change worth living for. I put my son to sleep tonight with a resurrected glince of hope. He so joyfully at eight years of age pronounced that WE had won. It is truly he that won tonight. My hope is that he will not have to bear the misgivings of a nation that tonight has passed him by. He may never know the division that has been so abhorrently evident in the last 18 months. My son, my champion, my shining ray of hope may see a world better than that of the past. I am truly humbled. Those of you out there that know me know this to be true. I love my country, I love my life, I love my son, and above all I love my mom! Thank you President Obama because I love you too!
