Doing my best Rockwell Kent: Riding the Sloughs of the Mississippi

Riding into a Rockwell Kent painting

On my way to Rays for our Midwest IMBA membership drive.  On the way I had to do a presentation in Lacrosse, WI.  It was nice as I was able to stay at my folks place, see my 96 year old grandmother and of course get a Fat Bike ride on the sloughs.  Winona has become such a cool place for the arts.  I noticed while I was here that they are having a Rockwell Kent Festival.  If you dont know Rockwell Kent, you should.  He actually lived in Winona for stint and also had his first showing here, so it is kind of cool to see what he saw and how that eventually entered his art...so here is to Rockwell, the original art badass...

I agree, RK was a fascinating man, a fascinating artist.
