he should have been an artist
born the last of nine tail end of an immigrant brood thrown into a life where work food on the table and the family were the world the intangibles did not exist and being the last the only one at home to help the aged ones survive past useful service quit school for work factory jobs back when that equaled the filth and servitude of no respect he ended up in hell's own playground roaring furnaces and noise that never quit where he took the talent in his hands and bent it to the will of industry up at five and out the door then home at four every day the same except for weekends when there was always because there was no money to buy new a balky car or some machine past useful life to be repaired and in the evenings mostly quiet happy with the paper and a beer and dinner every night at five o'clock but oh he read books too and in spare moments stolen when the bosses weren't looking fashioned jewelry and other small well-crafted pieces stray evidences of his gift suppressed never discussed barely acknowledged i wonder now that you are gone did you in silence hate your life prevented as you were by chains of obligation from expressing all the hopes and dreams and visions in your soul 2014 RC deWinter
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
