Saint Paul at Dawn, Oil on Linen, 12x16 (SOLD)After 23 years of living in Saint Paul, I still get a thrill from its old buildings and bridges along the mighty Mississippi. The bluffs surrounding the city on three sides afford the viewer unrivaled panoramas. When I first moved here, many of these views were choked off by buckthorn and weed trees. In recent years, there has been an asserted effort to get rid of these and plant native ground cover. Once again many of the panoramic views the cities founders were so careful to preserve, are enjoyed by all.
I arrived at this location right at sunrise while it was still cool. Later in the day the thermometer made it up into the mid nineties.
