2nd Place! "Mind, Spirit & Emotion" Art Competition

Yep, I got 2nd place. Check out the website here for more details. This is Sue, Farmer's Daughter. An FSA classic taken by Dorothea Lange that depicts a child on a trunk in a threadbare dress with a rancid fur collared coat. Most of her family's possessions are in that trunk so she's ready to pounce at anyone who comes too near.
