First of all, next year, there is no way we are doing an art show every weekend between April and September. NO WAY! We are exhausted.
I’m sorry we haven’t been able to post much this year. Not even pictures but with only five shows left this season I wanted to make a moment and let you know of one close to home in Minneapolis.
The Powderhorn Art Fair is this weekend. Of the three major art shows in Minneapolis this weekend – Uptown, Loring Park and Powderhorn, I like the cool grassy, tree-lined park overlooking the lake of Powderhorn best.
Especially if it is as hot as they are predicting this weekend.
I will be in Booth 102 overlooking the lake and, hopefully, under a tree. Come see me.
As an entrepreneur and artist I am always trading off one thing against another to make way for my Vision.
It was a disaster.
The Endeavor was eventually caught in an ice flow and chewed open by the grinding of the ice against her hull. They were forced to abandon ship and make their way nearly 650 miles across the frozen landscape.
Remember, they did this before Gore-Tex, GPS, cell phones, radios and a host of other modern “conveniences”.
To aid survival Shackleton allowed his crew to take only two pounds of personal belongings on their treacherous journey.
The essay highlights what they kept and what they left behind and then draws some parallels to the modern issues of American life.
I thought it was interesting essay and wanted to share it with you.

Everything has a story.
For Christmas, I’d like to paint yours.
Repeatedly, I’m asked where I get the ideas for my paintings. The truth is my ideas come from you.
The source material from all of my paintings come to me as commission work, personal genealogy research or are donated to me. As such, I know the family and history of almost all of my paintings. I may paint them as impressionism with, or without, a flair of contemporary pop-art or in a realism style but at the end of the day what I paint is based on what I know about the people, the place, the mood and my personal style.
I paint using oil and canvas in a master’s style – no computers, no tracing. Only old school technology.
