"...Whether rolling hills, farms with bright red barns, or a twisted, dusty road, Chehak paints one heck of a picture of the Midwest—and in nearly every style you can imagine, to boot!"

The Creative Writing Program at Iowa State University used one of my pictures as their program header.  April 2015.
