    Description

    Gooseberry Falls on the North Shore of Lake Superior is a sight to behold, particularly after heavy rains. One cannot witness a morning like this...fog lifting into the breaking sun... without wondering who else stood in awe on these very rocks. At different times, the Cree, the Dakota, and the Ojibwe lived here. As early as 1670, the Gooseberry River appeared on explorer maps. Shared human experiences have a way of transcending time.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
