Lake Superior has held a special fascination for me since my first summer at the Grand Marais Art Colony in 1959. I love its vast beauty and constant change. The many different lights on its surface, the colors, the wave patterns and squalls, the horizon, the rocks along its shore – these are a constant source of inspiration. I have always had an affinity for water in the landscape, working with such themes such as water plants, rain clouds, lakes and streams. Now that I spend more time on the North Shore, I am drawn to the challenge of capturing the Lake’s various aspects and moods.
