Totally blowing my own horn,DSC_0018 3 or rather, my own Shofar. Tomorrow night Rosh Hashanah begins. The Jewish New Year. This interview is about my family, photography & my art. I’m really…flattered to find myself here. The painting of Moses above, is the one of which i speak of in the magazine. Sculpture with watercolor, a bit like Louis Rosenthal.

      I love that Moses b/c of the connection to Louis Rosenthal. That was my first human form i’d ever tried to paint. I wish i could own it…all i have is a copy. Thank you, Peggy! ~amy

    Inspired by the lines, and Im paraphrasing, that young people dont care about the end product, it is about the creation. Great article.

      Ok…that is incredible, to be told that i inspired someone. I learned from the years of watching children get lost in what they were doing. I was always so afraid of starting something new, fear of failure. But…then i realized that even if the piece i started was turning out to be crap, that i would promise myself to find something about it that i liked & carried that information to the next attempt. We are our biggest critics. It is nice to shut that voice up. Cheers & thank you, thank you, thank you. ~amy
