St. Paul, Minnesota

Painting Description

On a recent car journey to the Grand Tetons, we passed through St. Paul, Minnesota. Our circuitous route allowed some time in this northern state where we found the people to be friendly and polite. In fact, perhaps Minnesota could be a farm team for people wishing to become Canadians— they were that nice. I considered painting a sketch of one of the many Snoopy sculptures that studded the downtown area which was the home ground of Charles Schultz, and hence, Snoopy. I decided instead to paint a building-scape. My easel was set up beside a ring road for this prosperous, growing city along with its twin city, Minneapolis. I withstood the gusts of wind augmented by the draughts of transport trucks only because I had tied my easel to a light standard, a trick that I have used many times especially when painting on a ship.
