Great Stage

The best place around here to watch amazing things unfurl is right here at Prairie Hill Farm. This gives me so much fodder for images...whether they be as photographs or painting ideas.

Late this afternoon we had two storm systems sandwich us...we were fortunate they both missed as the one pictured here had a tornado embedded in it. The tornado was about 7-8 miles east of us so we couldn't see it on the other side of the storm that spawned it.

This is an amazing time of the year, but a time to respect and watch in awe as that great stage is opened for all to see!

Here's to spring on the Tallgrass!
