Thanks Joan!

North Shore Art Scene

Joan Farnam gave an update in her blog this week: Tim Young and Anne Cervanka’s exhibit at the Johnson Heritage Post is open through Sept. 6 and is a must see, both for those who will see it for the first time and returnees. Young has been selling lots of paintings from this show and replacing them with new work. “The show is quite different from when it was first hung,” Young said earlier this week. Among the new pieces, his painting of the Gunflint Pines. A visit to the Heritage Post to see this fun show again is well worth it.

New Yorkies

These "New Yorkies" have just driven past the Chrysler Building in their 1962 Chrysler New Yorker.

Corgis Over Grand Marais

Maybe it's because of their short legs. Corgis like to get as much height as they can. It's not uncommon to see them buzzing the other dogs on the beach in their float planes.

And last, but not least, Corgi worlds.

Painter Tim Young is developing a series of fantastical paintings about Corgis, a Welsh herding dog. Young is sharing many of his latest paintings on his Facebook page, but you can find them all in their high-definition glory on his blog.

Corgis Below the Surface
Tim’s tongue-in-cheek explanation for “Corgis-Below-the-Surface” –

“July of every year, packs of corgis mysteriously appear below the surface of the Grand Marais Harbor. They swim and dance below the waves like fat otters. Fat, slow otters. Fat, slow otters without tails or webbed feet. OK, not much like otters at all. But they seem to enjoy it.”

Here’s another in the Corgi series. He calls it “Corgis in Grand Marais.”

Tim: “Those crazy Corgis. They come up north in their gas-guzzling station wagons and take all the best parking spots. They’re cute though.”

Young has a show coming up at the Johnson Heritage Post at the end of July but hasn’t decided yet if he’ll include these paintings or not.

His “regular” work can be seen at the Angry Trout and the Last Chance Gallery in Lutsen.

2009 Grand Marais Grand Car show, Artist's Point

Here are some photos from this year's car show. Last year I was so bummed out because although I knew I was getting my station wagon, I didn't get it until a week after the 2008 show.

Catch The Waves Membership Drive

WTIP asked me to create an image based on last year's Radio Waves Music Festival artwork, for the membership drive coming up next week. Here it is. It's always fun to work with WTIP, whether on the air or behind the scenes!

An Outrage!

Look what the TV show CHiPs did to this 1965 Plymouth Fury wagon! And as if that wasn't bad enough...

It's a disgrace! What is it I feel... FURY!

Snowstorm last night

I liked the way the snow looked in the light of my motion sensor light.
