I created Hidden Prayer after a trip with my father to Israel. While visiting the 'Western Wall' or 'Wailing Wall' in Israel I was distracted by a white dove that was resting in a crevice above many of the people who were praying. I was able to photograph the dove from a distance and wrote my own prayer a few weeks after I returned home. I rolled and tied my written prayer, photographed it, and placed the image in the collage. I photographed the pier and dock at Dale Hollow Lake in Kentucky.
