11x17" original photo print with quotation, "The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action". I paired the close-up of a fragrant asian lily with John Dewey quotation. He was an American philosopher, psychologist and educational reformer and lived from 1859-1952, as found in Wikipedia.

We all have chances and choices and some have tremendous opportunity and others just minimal opportunities. Some make the most of little and help others to do the same. I guess my desire is that this print is hopeful to those that read it. When things are difficult for me I try to learn from the wisdom of those that came before.

All the prints on Shinemart fit in off-the-shelf 16 x 20 frames and I send them rolled in a mailing tube USPS first class. Thanks for visiting my shop.
