This is a painting I just finished of Tony Fisher and his horse Cole. I miss Tony and Travis so much sense we moved back to Texas. They are great horsemen. They have a wonderful mother which proves the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. Beth

Old & New

This first photo was taken of me in 1950. I was 8 years old. I know that doesn't look right but I was very large for my age. If you can imagine a girl one head taller then all her classmates from 2nd threw 10th grade, that was me.

Now with that out of the way I will get on with my story. I was showing my husband some of the places I had been when I was a child, while we were back home last summer. As we were driving along the old members river road I started yelling, " stop!!!". I had spied this old wishing well where my father had taken my picture. We got out of the car and I set down where I had sat so many years ago. It was awesome. Charlie got the camera and took my picture. So that is how these pictures started. I just decided to put the two Me's together in one picture. I put the new, old picture of me into the old, young picture of me. Do you get that? I'm not sure I really do. Anyway I painted the old, young me and put the already painted new, old me into the picture of the old, young me.

What do you think? Should I have put the old, young me into the picture of the new, old me?

That way everything would have color. Let me know what you think. Beth

Before & After
Do you have a special picture, except there is someone missing or you need someone taken out? Did you tear up a favorite picture and regret it later? Or, do you have old family photographs that are faded and ruined? In Beth's Photoshop, I will restore your old photos bringing them back to life with color, taking out waterspots, specks, scratches, or tears, put the pieces back together again, add or take away subjects, or create photo collages. Just email me to let me know what you need done.
