The woman was posed for this portrait lives in Oregon.  She is a fiber artist and had a blog that I used to follow.  She used a pseudonym and has since deleted that blog.  Her life went in a new direction shortly after she was baptized.  She allowed me to include her decision in my series and sent the photo for me to use.  Matters of faith and decisions in life are so important.  It was my privilege to create this piece.
