My name is Toni, I go by the psuedonym of tigerflower - it is based on my favorite childhood story by Robert Vavra. I have only been dabbling in photography and paint for about 2 years - so I am quite the novice. I suffer from a debilitating connective tissue disorder and can no longer work in the secular world, but that won't stop me from expressing
myself. I live in the great state of Texas with my most excellent husband Rick, 2 dogs, 3 cats, a tank full of overfed fish and my elderly but still very entertaining parents. Hot tip - you are never too old to learn something from your mother. :lol: We have a 24 year old daughter who is married and going to school in San Diego, CA - love ya' baby! - and that pretty much sums up my introduction. I am very happy to find this group and to take part. I welcome all tips and critiques that will help me learn and develop as both an artist and a photographer! I have a web site doman www.artmarkette.com which is under construction - I will let you know when it is ready. In the meantime, I hope you will stop by to see my stuff in the gallery! Ciao!

Hi Toni, I'm glad you've found us. Love your 'Daydreamer' and the palms. Looking forward to check out your works on the website, Erika

Hi tigerflower,

Thank you Joe and Erika! I am so pleased you like the Daydreamer - it is my favorite - well maybe tied with Butterfly Princess - I am partial to that one since my daughter was the model!

Beautiful Models and Daughters and other blessings

Postby tigerflower » Tue May 29, 2007 4:47 pm

Yes, God really blessed me when he gave me Bethany - she is beautiful inside and out. I have photographed her and used her for many works - she loves it of course and was probably a major ham for the camera by the time she was two. That particular photo came from her Senior prom pictures - I always did her prom pics because I shot dramatic layouts not the same ol same ol that the school offered. She loves a good fairy tale as well as any other girl so we made them up together.
Can you tell I love her very much? lol - She is attending school in San Diego - she is studying to be a Psychologist - so one day I can call her Dr. Bethany - then the
agging will be in full throttle. LOL
This is us together in Tahoe right after graduation.

You're a proud mom and so am I. Can you imagine my surprise when my six year old takes my album where I keep the pics of my works and shows it to his dad, pointing out the ones he likes and then proudly telling him: 'My mom is an artist'!! I almost fell out of the chair! I never said anything like that to him, where did he get it from? That was the best compliment I ever got or will ever get! :lol: Erika
