Recently, I keep saying I feel like a kid again, and this is why. I started hand coloring again. After 10 years of not hand coloring my photographs, I can now. There is a new photographic paper I can hand color on using my techniques. So ecstatic! How many of you have hand colored your photographs in the past? You can hand color again starting right now!!!
When I hand color there are no rules, I can make a mess. I then can easily erase and start anew. One of the best things is each image is unique. It is a one of a kind piece of art.
Be a kid again, and play with your creativity. Join me and others on the hand coloring adventure.

Before hand coloring was applied to the print.
