James Ellis Fine Art


2021, oil on canvas, 10" x 20" (original not for sale)

The Highlands, an area of rugged topography along the North Shore of Lake Superior is comprised of rocky cliffs, cobblestone beaches, forested hills and ridges through which scenic rivers and waterfalls descend as the flow to Lake Superior. Spring is a time of major transition in Minnesota. Snowstorms are common early in the spring, but by late-spring temperatures begin to moderate and rain showers and thunderstorms replace winter precipitation. Bill Thompson, III, team captain for Bird Watcher's Digest until his death in March of 2019 said it best, "I love to inhale the earthy spring smell that the land produces in late February and early March. It's equal parts rain and soil, grass and ozone, creating a perfume that no amount of chemical wizardry can replicate. These days at dusk, you're likely to find me standing in the front yard, nose pointed skyward, eyes closed, breathing deeply. It's heaven."
