While serving in the Vietnam War, Jim Stevens was shot in the head. He survived, but decades later, the injury caused Stevens to lose nearly all of his vision -- his line of sight is now the size of a tiny pinhole.

He works out of his studio in Wheat Ridge, and has paintings featured through July 30 in "About Face," a portrait show at Denver's Cabal Gallery.
Stevens spoke with Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel.
