DSC07124 - Version 3

This was one of a few favorite moments from the “Left To Right” art show, it was a moment I actually sat down for a second and took a minute with a few dear friends.  Sabina Kelly is one of those dear friends.   She is a very lovely hard working mother of three, whom I’ve grown to have great respect and admiration for.  Sabina is a non stop traveling international Pin Up Model, as well as a host/judge of a television show called Best Ink on the Oxygen network, and a all around great human.  I hope the very best for her in all her endeavors and I am proud to call her friend.
