Sam A Baker State Park
Goliath at the campsite
Samuel the snake charmer
My three on the trail with the naturalist
We spent the weekend at Sam A Baker State Park in the St. Francois Mountains of southeast Missouri, just north of the bootheel. Last night, I started two small paintings of the region including the St. Francois River and Big Creek. I chose to paint them in a smaller format, because the simple beauty of that place seems to occupy such a diminutive spot on the map.
Hopefully, I’ll have them completed and photographed in time for tomorrow’s blog posting. – DN
