My first week in school is complete! I had time to reflect on my life during my drive back and forth to school. I spent 25 years as a dental hygienist. I loved that time in my life but I certainly wasn't an artist. I have always loved my camera, taken lots of pictures, printed many of them, and I've even put them into a scrapbook--many scrapbooks. During all those years I never considered my myself an artist. This quarter I am taking 3 art classes in addition to Photography Fundamentals. All of sudden...Marcia Richardson....Artist!! Keep expecting the unexpected. Always keep the door open for your dreams. They really can come true.
