09.01.13 crystal brown

The lake at the cabin is the color of tea. For years I assumed that it was the iron – this is the Iron Range after all – but it turns out that it’s a tannic lake; the brown color comes from decomposing leaves and wood, not iron. It’s crystal clear, it just has a warm color. When the sun shines through the shallows, the rays dance like streaks of honey on the golden sand.

lake time

I haven’t been the most consistent blogger lately. And, it’s possible that no one would have noticed my week + absence.

In any case, we’re heading for the lake and a welcome break from the grid. I’ll take lots of photos and get back in touch when we return.

05.02.13 open water

The only picture I managed to get yesterday was this one – a shot of my finished wood block-mounted print – ‘Wave’ – for the 7th Annual ‘Open Water’ Exhibition. I’m pleased to be part of this show for the 2nd year. All the details – plus, the two other pieces I’ll have in the show this year – are included below.
