Grand Portage, Minnesota
This is an oil pastel done on site along the shore of Lake Superior. The area is a park near the Fort that was recreated to show the ways of the fur trading business of a long time ago in northern Minnesota. The area of land is where the Indians and trappers had to pick up their canoes and goods and carry them on land to get to the next set of waters that were inland. The building is one of the fort's buildings where the captain of the fort lived.
