I love Minnesota so much that I married a Minnesotan! He has many relatives there, so we try to visit it as often as we can, which is not often enough. During the last visit two summers ago, we went to Itasca State Park, the headwaters of the Mississippi River, in north central Minnesota. The kids of all ages can cross the mighty river and feel mighty themselves. You can walk across the small wooden foot bridge, like the family with a dog in my painting. Or, if you feel particularly brave, you can wade the river barefoot, like those in the picture below. What would you do, if you were there?

If you send me your pictures to email@example.com, I may make paintings out of them. How fun is that! At the end of September, I will do a drawing and one lucky person wins a free painting. You can buy the painting anytime, but there is no obligation. Thanks!
Today is Day Twelve of Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 Challenge. 18 more paintings to go!
