I found this old fashioned photo of a young girl & she was my inspiration for this piece. I used my photograph of the Blue Ridge Mountains as my background. The story continued as I collaged different items on layers until I was satisfied with the outcome.

After the Hurricane

After the Hurricane

I was down in Nags Head, North Carolina about a week after Hurricane Isabel hit the coast in 2003.
