The days are slipping by fast here and the Artisans Road Trip is quickly approaching! If you haven't heard of A.R.T. before, it is an open studio tour of artist's studios and galleries in NW Iowa each fall. This year marks the 10th Anniversary for the Artisans Road Trip and there's a lot of artists scattered about the countryside here in NW Iowa to enjoy - why not stop by the studio here and get a great view of the valley and the studio as well!
I have been busy framing up new pieces for visitors to see and even just finished a small color pencil drawing that I started back in July! A nice little piece of a Red Admiral butterfly on a Swamp Milkweed (Aclepias incarnata) in the lower pasture here!
I have also been busy creating new gift cards and note card sets! Did you know the largest gift card and note card collection portraying NW Iowa is found right here in our studio?! No where else will you be able to find as many, beautiful, and diverse Note Card Sets, single panel, two panel and triple panel Art Cards and Photo Cards of NW Iowa, our landscape and flora and fauna!

The most recent addition to our notecard sets is the "Scenic O'Brien County Card Collection"! This beautiful little set is of the most recent set of beautiful landscapes to be added to our notecard collection. Our note cards come in sets of 4 designs, 2 of each - in a set of 8 cards and envelopes. These are great cards to send to friends and family - the old fashioned way of communicating is still the best - most personal and heartfelt, and genuine way of communicating with those you love!
