Lake Benson Study

Posted on July 14, 2008 by - Dana's Work, Uncategorized

This is a very small 4x 6″ acrylic study on a canvas board, of the old cedar trees by Lake Benson near Finland MN.  I camped for 3 nights at Tettegouche State Park at the beginning of July.  I missed it but my husband even saw a moose while hiking and an attacking grouse.  Here is an article from the MN department of Natural Resources describing the area.

Swede Hollow Park-

This is a photo from last month, I really started rushing this study in oil, as it started to rain.  Swede Hollow is a unique little corner of East St Paul (MN), but this particular day as soon as I got set up, the clouds circled in and the rain poured down!  Ended up taking cover under the twisted stone bridge, where we found a dry viewing place of the storm and sharing the dry cover with a man drinking a 40.  If you are walking in the Swede Hollow area be sure to stop in at the Water & Oil Gallery and the Swede Hollow Cafe.
