prairie inspiration

Three trips in one year to the prairies of Colorado have influenced the work I'm currently working on in the studio. With my digital camera in hand, I set out on foot to tour my family's farm on five sections of land (that's a lot of ground to cover!) as well as the rural town of Deer Trail where my husband grew up. The aerial shots were taken two days ago on our return flight to Seattle following a graduation weekend and running my first 10k (BolderBoulder) with my family, girls included!
