Hi dear visitor, This new Mississippi River painting, called "The Best Dam Town in Minnesota", celebrates the peaceful view of the city from near the dam flood gates and water retaining area that is very unique for Little Falls, MN. The art currently is on display at the Great River Arts in downtown Little Falls for the months of November and December 2017 where I am also having a large exhibition of my colorful artworks ( ~40) , some new and some have been posted on FAA already. You are invited to experience my art in person, if you would like.
A bridge crosses within a block of this area also ( see the far left).
This particular site is not a common place to take a photo, I had to climb up by the railroad tracks where trains do go by about every 10 minutes some days. The river was so calm and the clouds overhead reflected the beauty of the impending colorful sunset. My panorama view used half a full sheet of watercolor paper split the long way. I discovered how the town is designed as I manipulated this new long format to create my landscape.
The right side of the river in 1803 was part of the United States ( as you face the town in the image) and the left side ( not pictured) was part of the Louisiana Purchase. 100 years later in 1903, this city of Little Falls was booming with many businesses, and timber floating down the river, sawmills, papermill, creamery's, a railroad, electric station ( is pictured here) and had so many activities and people who lived here
Now another 100 years later, we still appreciate our heritage. Some of the past businesses are gone with the changes of time but the dam system is still very important for controlling the water levels and providing the opportunity for making electricity. Today, as I write this note, the water is really traveling fast and really running over the dam. We have had a lot of rain this fall and the Mississippi River is a recipient of water collection in the state of Minnesota.
Wishing you the BEST! Visit us someday when you are traveling to Minnesota.

Wow! I am really busy these last weeks!
I just got back from a lovely art retreat at a church camp out of state that was so fantastic! As it is a place to make art, renew friendships with other artists and have a break in time to do our own thing and grow.
I did get a lot done, enjoyed the camaraderie of problem solving together with other artists with our own artworks or theirs, and enjoyed seeing the variety of mediums being used and applied to create art around me.
Now I am back in the real world.
A reception, is coming up tomorrow, Sat 10/28/17 for my Central MInnesota Watercolorists group in Little Falls, MN. at Great River Arts. Little Falls, MN
I am also displaying my art in Sprout Marketplace in Little Falls also, this whole same day. But I have also arranged for way to attend the reception and have friend coverage at my Sprout booth so I can also attend the reception;. A big thank you for this!
My joint watercolor artworks display with Kerry Kupferschmidt will take place very soon - and will be up for the months of November and December 2017. We are delivering our artworks to the GRA Center around Nov 1 and the staff will hang the exhibit for us. So nice! Each of us will have approximately 38 - 40 pieces on display.
This is a wonderful space to show art in this gallery, as it has large tall walls, many UV lights and is so special! The community will also have several dinner theater opportunities to view our art while it is up for view.
Thank you, dear reader, for your visit to my site and the blog. May you also have a great day today! yours in art, Kathy
