Of course I do have an excuse. I pulled a muscle in my back on the last day of our tour, and I could hardly get out of bed for a few days. My husband had to help pull me to a sitting position so I get up. A heating pad and lots of Advil helped me get lots better. But I just don't have any enthusiasm yet for painting.
I started a still life yesterday of some pears, but I eventually wiped that off. Today I am going to my painting class, which I just love. Maybe I can get my spark back. So I don't have any paintings to post. I think I'll post a few pictures from our trip.
We went to Rapid City SD, where we boarded our tour bus. We visited Mt. Rushmore, the Black Hills, Jackson WY, and into Yellowstone. The trip was fabulous. I'd never been to the Great Plains before. I loved the beautiful hills and trees.
My favorite picture is the last one. Our friend who took it called it "two geezers and a geyser".
