June Art Fair Schedule Update


I hope everyone has been enjoying the Memorial Day weekend. It's been more than a little warm in Minnesota lately. Summer is definitely here!

I have some great news to share! We were called from the wait list and will be exhibiting at the Edina Art Fair this upcoming weekend. It's a wonderful, high-quality art fair, and I'm always grateful for the opportunity to display my photography there. If you go, you can find me in Booth #107 on France Avenue, just north of 51st Street. My latest work will be available for purchase.

Here's what else I've got on tap for June. It's gonna be a busy month!

New Release – Sensations of Superior

Sensations of Superior – North Shore of Lake Superior near Covill, Minnesota

There are a number of offshore small islands and rocks that dot the landscape of Lake Superior's North Shore. Few are as beautiful is this one, with its lovely grouping of trees, situated several miles northeast of Grand Marais, MN. Given the incredible nature of this place, I am a bit ashamed to admit that I had only visited it one other time (about five years ago) before making this image last fall.

On this recent visit, the conditions were about as good as I could ask for. The sunrise was brilliant, and good-sized waves were lapping at the rocky coast. I love showcasing the energy of the lake in my photographs and choose shutter speeds that convey this feeling in a visually pleasing way. The sun gives this image a strong visual metaphor as it is the source of [almost] all light and energy here on Earth.
