Counntry Structure

 East Ottertail Minnesota has a collection of old
farming buildings re purposed. I think these structures
look amazing and have the potential for a
series of quilts. We are down to 4 days of our
month in Battle Lake Minnesota. This trip
has been on our bucket list. This is an area
that my family and I have visited for over
59 years. I hadn't been here in 20 years and
I have enjoyed my visit.
 Friendly people. We had lunch Sunday and
the computer was down so they could not process
credit cards. Just com back tomorrow and pay us.
What trust. I am well rested and ready for creating
in the studio. Lots of ideas from my visit to Minnesota.
 I am ready to go home and start processing .
First I must spend some more time with the
camera and record more of this special place
from my childhood.

Water studies

 This is a great opportunity to study the movement
of water. It is fascinating to see the patterns  that
moving water makes.
 Add is some rocks and it changes again
 In still water I can see what is beneath. But my
favorite is water under pressure. These patterns
are the most interesting. This is the last week of
our Minnesota adventure. One more thing will
be crossed off of our bucket list. I have loved
the cool nights sleeping in fresh air. The air
is so free of any pollution and dust that
I sleep 6 to 8 hours a night. I will go home so
rested that I will be supercharged in the studio.
