July 1, 2018...and I am a month and half into my 3rd year here. What started out as an exercise has become a passion. The constant and continuous inspiration from the feedback to the challenges and the images posted by the amazing people on this site and the encouragement and help...wow, it's been amazing. So I like to think I'm getting better at this craft and this art. So thank you.

My name is Madeline and I have been living since December 2017 in Salem, Oregon after living in Fort Lauderdale, FL for a year and before that in Granada, NIcaragua for seven years. The name Granagringa is a combination of Granadina, a person who lives in Granada and Gringa, the universal Latin American term for a North American. It's a pleasure to meet you all.
