Officially, it’s summer – just in case you haven’t noticed. After two weeks of a fantastic pastel painting class with Laurie Beth Zuckerman in Fort Collins, I packed my car and headed to the Midwest.
My first stop was Minneapolis. Creative gardens and garage doors, skyscrapers, thrift stores, strange trees, and friendly residents gave my trip a colorful, creative edge. Of course, visiting the newest member of our family, Siri, was the highlight. (They had her name picked out before Apple announced its Siri.)
I haven’t been faithful to my blog, but I hope to post more articles as I continue my summer travels. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite images from Minneapolis.
A sales woman – also an artist- in the thrift store Ragstock on Lake Street in Minneapolis.
A garage door located in the funky Uptown area of Minneapolis.
I literally saw a painting walking past me on Lake Street in Minneapolis.
Does anyone know the name of the these strange trees in Minneapolis? I also saw one that had gray fuzzy blooms. What the hell? (WTH)
Siri’s toes: according to my son Jake, “Frito toes.”
I happened to notice this house while waiting for the bus on Bryant Street. For a minute, I thought I was in England.
