Sunset on Saint Paul’s Waterfront
Oil on Canvas - 2009
Saint Paul, Minnesota’s capital city population 280,000 is located along the banks of the Mississippi River. Saint Paul was founded in 1849 and was then the northern most navigable point on the river.
The tallest buildings of downtown in this painting are from the left: the Quest Buildings, City Hall, Crown Plaza Hotel, First National Bank Building, Galtier/Cray Plaza and Kellogg Square. The Wabasha Bridge is prominently featured as well. In the foreground are the River Boar Grill and just some of the many boats which are members of the Saint Paul Yacht Club which are docked along Harriett Island.
