The Saturdays of repairing broken “An Artist’s Notebook” post from the past are gone. At least I think I hope they are. I’m sure there is still work to be done still. There always is work to be done.
Therefore, I’m not sure what will occupy Saturdays. It will probably just be a random collection of things until maybe I get caught up on the backlog. And then it is quite possible we will start taking Saturdays off. Of course, I’ve been saying that for years, so we will see what we see.
Here is a collection of pictures I took while harvesting the tow signs of Linn County and Jones County. Linn County was done over two trips. One where I got most of the town signs of Linn County and another where I went back and got some troublesome signs like Cedar Rapids and Hiawatha and Robins. I didn’t take many auxiliary images in Linn County. On the second trip where I cleaned up Linn County, Michelle was my “navigator”. It was also a windy day. It seems like whenever Michelle and I get together, it is a windy day.
Here is the first collection of Auxiliary images from Linn and Jones County:
As you can tell, Grant Wood and “American Gothic” is important to Jones County. Stone City is a cool little unincorporated town. Although, there is much there now but memories. It is too bad that nothing remains of that hotel pictures on the sign. It looked beautiful. I wish we would have been able to visit the inside of the “General Store”, but it wasn’t open yet when we got there.
There are plenty more pictures from this road trip to share in the future!
