Here we are into May and the shows have finally begun. This year I have added a new level of interest by entering both Photography and Painting categories at some of my outdoor art shows. So far the response has been amazingly positive and I look forward to sharing with all of you my passion for the ocean and the magical experiences I have had out there all winter while swimming in ice cold water with my 35mm in the CMT water housing without any floatation for hours on end! The physical and mental challenges have been overwhelming but I feel confident they will continue for a long time, regardless of my age. Thank you all for your support!
