The next stage

I've had trouble getting to the internet to post the next stage of our journey. NO art work this week as I was totally uninspired by anything - oh except the second portrait for the wetcanvas class but I forgot to photo that to put on here. Doh!

So we had four days at the Lake of the Ozarks, central Missouri. Great lazy time with family. A great deal too much alcohol and food but lots of fresh air, swimming in the lake, boating and paddling.

Wonderful sunsets too.

Bit too crowded to by idyllic - I think I must be turning into a hermit as the thought of even being able to see my neighbours fills me with horror. Maybe thats too many years of big city living!

Driving back to Kansas City we crossed the Missouri river.

Monday we left to come to Iowa for a couple of weeks - a couple of photos of Iowa countryside - just realised I got photos with not an ear of corn in sight! Miracles do happen!

Am hoping to get out and do some painting while we are here but I can't say I find it very inspiring here either. Hope I can find some pretty barns somewhere.

And just to alleviate any fears that I have been overworking myself .........

Nice to see the world through your lens Anita.

And yaah, I can see that you're working wayyyyyyy to hard in that last photo. I think you should slow down a bit... :O)
