For me, my artwork is a big part of that leap.  And let me tell you it is a sprinting, all out, do not stop kind of jump!  It isn’t easy putting yourself out there every single day for judgement.  Imagine yourself standing naked in a…

A Colorado spring thunderstorm striking in the late night above a red barn on a farm and what a beautiful sight.  This is another one  my first storm chase of the 2014 season and what a great show.
