Thought I would include this clip as I was working at the 10,000 Lakes Festival Last week, and saw the Flaming Lips Perform. The confetti and lights reminded me of stepping into a painting!
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.
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.
St Paul River view, acrylic on maple board. I’ll have to tackle this view another time, this didn’t really come out the way I had envisioned, I think it needs to be worked on in a larger scale. This piece is 9 x 12″. I’m going to put it aside and revisit it later.
