Ice Cutting

Painting Description

In 1990 I visited New Orleans, LA, where I heard tales of how years ago ice was cut in the north, wrapped in wood shavings or straw and shipped down the Mississippi River to cool the special southern summer drink, the Mint Julip. These stories stirred in my memory reminiscences told to me by my father, of how as a lad he had helped with cutting ice on Silver Lake in Waterloo Park. I knew from my childhood, where that ice had been stored on my grandfather’s farm on Fisher-Hallman Road. These various accounts came together to inspire my painting which took about eight years to complete.
