Favorite Sons

Spring in Town by Grant Wood, 1942

I am headed out to Iowa the rest of this week for a visit, so I will not be posting again until next week, but I thought I would leave you with two of my favorite Iowa artists, Grant Wood and William Bailey. Both of them capture brilliantly the straight-forward simplicity Iowa stands for, to me. Simplicity, with under-layers of pride, truthfulness, and appreciation for life.
