...or Introduction rather.
I had been emailing with the Artist of Crying Little Girl, and he told me his Mural "Treasure Hunt" was in Granger, IA....Claire informed me that was not too far from her farm, Whispering Acres, so we decided to go check it out on the way.
Of course it was awesome!
Claire is standing next to the girl, just to give a size reference this time.
I love the etch-a-sketch in the chest!
As I took the next shot below, I literally moved to the left, because I thought the shovel was covering the letter 'B' on the map-so I thought if I moved I could see the whole word 'Buried'....it took my teenie brain a few seconds to process the fact that the shovel and shadow were both part of the mural.
AMAZING!!!!! I want to find more of these!
I guess all the excitement of seeing the Treasure Hunt made me speed a little, because not 2 minutes after leaving the Mural I got pulled over! OMG cops are killing me lately!
He commented that I was far from home (2.5 hours), and I told him I was visiting my friend Claire and that I had just been photographing The Treasure Hunt.....I guess knowing the name of it impressed him because he only gave me a warning.
I still have not been able to look through the hundreds of animal pics I took on Claire's farm yet, but as soon as I do I will post a link to them I promise. Here are just a few more for now though.
They were all SO CUTE!
Even the dog! Stigley? I can't spell.
And Claire gave me some eggs from her chickens :)
I am waiting for D to get back in town so we can cook up some 'Whispering Omelettes' together!
Claire, thanks again for everything!
I can't wait to visit again someday :)
