I don’t believe there are many resorts in Minnesota whereupon the guests can learn how to paint AND go fishing. Northwind Lodge is one of the few places that this is possible. Hats off to jobs well done by Jim and Terri Rhoads of Iowa! Jim last touched an artist’s paint brush in 3rd grade. It’s been a while and yet his artwork today would say otherwise. Terri has a bit more experience and her painting is lively and appealing. Frames are going to kick both paintings to another level. Both Jim and wife Terri had a great time as did I. Art lessons are ALWAYS fun for me as well. Painting, telling stories, and concentrating REALLY hard make learning to paint a lot of fun! Two to three hours feels like an hour. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jim and Terri took up painting when they return home. It’s a great activity any time of the year.
When not in class, they are on the water, baking pizza on the Weber outside of the cabin, going on hikes, and of course, catching fish. This is the greatest way to socially distance out of all the options available.
