Pictured above is our good friend Alex Pena with a cyanotype she did of Alice and put in her Senior Art Show at Houston Baptist University.
This picture was taken last April in front of our house. Alex came over to pick up her boys and Alice and Robert were blowing bubbles outside. Alex LITERALLY jumped out of their suburban with her camera in hand and took a million shots of Alice. To me the picture looks like Alice is actually conjuring up these bubbles, like a forest sprite. This one she chose to show! We feel so honored, she was only able to choose 5 of her pieces and one was of Alice. Even more exciting is we get this WONDERFUL piece of artwork to keep in our collection once the show is over.
Alex and her husband Robert have two wonderful boys Daniel and Jacob and we are so blessed to count them as our friends. We love the Penas.
It was fun to take Alice to the show and see all the neat artwork. She was a little shy and told me "I feel a little nervous with all these people saying I'm beautiful.."
To see a closeup of the cyanotype go to her gallery and look at her art portfolio. The cyanotypes are on the second page of that gallery.
Alex can make one for you, too she charges a mere $200 for the heirloom piece
you can contact her at
Thanks Alex you are a Rock Star!
