For Minnesotans, it's a must see.

It's hard to desribe it, you have to be there.

I can see the curviture of the earth from Pallesades.

It will lure you.

Quick Paint

Gary and I registerd for the quick paint event.

We have 1 1/2 hrs. to paint a scene from the area.

Gary chose lake Superior, I chose a lone pine.

We both liked the other's painting better. (go figure!)

Gary Hittle

This is my friend, Gary Hittle.

I've known Gary since childhood. We both had been caught drawing

during class many times. You can still catch us drawing, and now,

painting too!

Gary introduced me to Grand Marais, and it's Art Colony, thanks Gary.

Grand Marais, Mn.

Grand Marais is a town in northern Minnesota. It has an Art Colony

that spans 62 years. (Since 1947)

Every year, there is a time artists come together to paint local scenes.

This week long event produces art note worthy to anyone, anywhere.

I was there for the first time, last year.

I was invited back this year, and went!

(I camped on the beach along Lake Superior.) This was my sunrise!
