Grand Jury Winner

"I love the magic of this beautiful image. The soft light, the warm winter glow, the bokeh lights in the shop. The gorgeous wooden sled is such a lovely prop. I live in a place where we go to the beach for Christmas, and a white Christmas is a thing of our dreams. This piece is magical to me. The expression on the little girls face is one of soft wonder. I love everything about this. Well done on winning the Lifetime Story Art Education membership! I look forward to following more of your inspiring work." - Karen Alsop
