Day 4
It rained most of the day. I was lucky to spend it in my studio at the Pendleton Art Center. I repacked my gear, and did some studio work…walked downtown for a hot meal and read some of my book.

Day 5

A beautiful sunny day. I rode my bike across the rive back to Kentucky, where I sketched the Baker Hunt.

I stopped by the river and did a little sketch of the skyline. It has some flaws to work out, but it will make a great block print. 20120418-152710.jpg

I love public art, and the floodwall in Covington, is painted with beautiful murals depicting the city’s rich history.

This is one of my favorite murals. I can relate to the pioneer spirit of the folks traveling in the covered wagon.

After leaving the city, I followed the river for awhile. The river valley is beautiful, but it is a challenge climbing out (especially with a bike loaded with gear) climbed out, rode by the airport, then camped beside a little creek outside Burlington, KY.
