artist journal page about itasca state park We went to the Mississippi River headwaters at Itasca State Park Eight in the morning is the perfect time to visit; we had the park to ourselves. The pine cone was covered with lichen and was very sticky; too bad I didn't notice before tossing it in the back seat.

artist journal page drawing of a gadget

This is the all in one tool that I keep in my purse. I bought the tool at Cabela's, the carabiner with the compass is from Coleman and the colors match perfectly.

The Cabela's tool contains a pliers, flashlight, saw, pocketknife, phillips head screwdriver, bottle opener, and a regular screwdriver.

This 38" high, driftwood sculpture was inspired by the Caribbean Steel Drum song Island in the Sun.

I've been asked to exhibit it in an art show here in the Twin Cities.
