165 foot painting by Chinese artist Jizi. Click to see larger.

I have had an interest in panoramic images for a long time. I have often seen Chinese scrolls as another form of panos. But this one blew me away. The brush and ink painting wraps around the whole gallery in the current exhibit at the Weisman Museum. In addition there is a room full of massive paintings. To top it off there is a wonderful video of the late Jizi talking about his work and the struggles Chinese artists faced during the Cultural Revolution. As Jizi himself says "it is no longer enough to paint the mountain. You must now paint the universe."

Up through the end of the year. I will be making multiple trips back. Here is more on the show:

New Video From Lake of the Woods 
Friday, September 9, 2016, 03:43 PM
What I did on my summer vacation:
I made a timelapse video using GoPro cameras of Angle Inlet on Lake of the Woods along the Minnesota - Ontario border. The camera was placed on various parts of a boat dock and recorded from before sunrise to after sunset. I choose the GoPro over a DSLR due to the high humidity and heavy condensation in the evening. A 12 hour waterproof GoPro battery from PolarPro let me run the camera all day or all evening.

I was interviewed on KARE 11, the local Minneapolis St. Paul NBC affiliate TV station about iconic photographs—those images that represent an era. In particular I talked about the Baton Rouge photo of the protester being arrested that has gone viral. Here is the link to the news story online: Click Here to See the Video

Two Works in the Anderson Center Summer Exhibit / Celebration of the Arts 
Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 11:08 PM
I have two works in the 17th Annual Summer Celebration of the Arts at the Anderson Center in Red Wing MN. The opening is July 9, 2016, 11 am to 5 pm with the exhibit up until fall.

The first is an image of the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array Radio Telescopes near Socorro New Mexico. The digital archival pigment print is 16X60.

The second image is of the Vermillion River looking toward Prairie Island in the Mississippi River. The photograph was taken less than two miles from the Anderson Center in the Canon River valley backwaters and floodplain. This print is also a 16X60 digital archival pigment print. Both prints were made on Hahnemuhle Baryta fiber based paper.
