If you've been following my posts on facebook, you see we are on our roadtrip and are now in the heart of the beautiful, but humid, midwest! The truck and trailer and doing great and so are Doug and Max! Cheyenne the first night (400+ miles), West Omaha the 2nd night (400+ miles) and last night, Galena, Illinois. We are just a mile or so from the Mississippi River. It is seriously gorgeous but the humidity is brutal. We think 24% humidity in Yew-tah is rough! bahaha!!

a minute. Just waiting. . . still waiting . . .
So as we were driving through Iowa and Illinois, we were amazed at the literally thousands of "barn paintings" at every turn. Just incredible!! So today was the first day we didn't have an 8 hour drive ahead of us so I am sitting comfortably in the trailer with some cool air while Doug is acclamating himself to the heat and is out doing a plein air study this morning. I've had many of you ask about purchasing these plein air studies so I've talked Doug into letting me offer this little plein air study to my blog readers FIRST for the "wet paint plein air" price, which is straight off the easel, unframed and will be ready to ship within 3-4 days. (We will give it time to dry so Doug can put a varnish over it). Saw Wheat!! (say it fast . . . ) Sooooo, first person to call, text or email me with dibs . . . I'll list those numbers and addresses below.
We went into a great little town last night - Galena. I came to this town almost 30 years ago and I was always thinking "I want to come here for my honeymoon!"
Well, 27 years after the "first" honeymoon wasn't half bad!! It is the cutest little town ever tho. We walked all over and finally found a restaurant we wanted to try only to find out it is closed on Tuesdays!! bahaha!! Just our luck!! I sent the picture of "Poopsies" to my kids last night. Wesley said "I'm glad you didn't go there for dinner, I heard the reviews were kinda crappy!"
Below are a couple of paintings that are ready to head to a gallery soon. First one is "Sculpting" and is heading to Terzian Gallery. Hoping we can get it to Salt Lake City while we're gone so Amy and Karen can coordinate a pick up curbside on 2nd South and State!
