Artist Biography:
"This photo was taken the first day of school 2009-2010 school year. I love the anticipation and excitement of the first day of the school year. I try to take as many photos as possible of students connecting with friends and their teachers Roman was jest starting his first full day of school in the first grade when this photo was taken. The look on Roman's face says it all, 'Not sure I'm looking forward to this first day.' Pretty much every time I see Roman these days (he's now in second grade) he has a big smile on his face." -Maryanne Bartell
