It finally came - the very last day of the year, Dec. 31st, 2008. And now that I see it, I really believe it - I am a published photographer! My photograph, Misty Mountain, is published in the book, "Best of Photography, 2008".
When I see all of the other photos that made it into Best of Photography 2008, published by Photographer's Forum, I am very humbled to be included with these amazing artists from around the world. I have made one of my goals for 2009 to again enter another photography contest with one of the photos I may yet shoot, or one of the ones I have sitting on my computer which I have not put on my web or blog. Did I tell you that I love photography??? Almost as much as painting! - which I now must get back to so that some of my other goals for 2009 will be realized. :-)
Thank you to everyone who has stopped by my blog this year. Thank you to all of you who made comments. You have encouraged me to try things I would never have dreamed of on my own! I am optimistic that 2009 will bring opportunities and experiences greater than 2008 - and I am excited to continue to develop and grow as an artist.
Happy New Year everyone!
