I saw a nice photograph taken by Travis Melin from Ely, Minnesota. He took it in a meadow near Tom's Logging Camp on scenic Hwy 61 near Two Harbors, Minnesota. Richard Abraham, an artist, said he recalled the words of a customer of his who remarked while looking at one of his paintings, "no sky, no buy". Well, that seems like a challenge to me. I also remember a photographer, when we were visiting Paris, say to me "remember...close-up, close-up, close-up". So, I'm off on a series of paintings, that at the moment, I don't seem to be tiring of yet.
