"Tucked Away" by  Patricia Duncan


What is the Gunflint Trail? The Gunflint Trail once was a primitive trail that was used for moving goods on foot or by dogsled to the port of Grand Marais on Lake Superior. This particular plein air painting location “Tucked Away” is off the beaten path of the Gunflint Trail. The invitation of fall and the change of seasons beckons a call from within ourselves to search and embrace solitude and silence. This simple cabin in the woods, exemplifies an opportunity to seek those defining moments that we long for.

"Color Vibration" by  Patricia Duncan


A certain call for a celebration….a 40th wedding anniversary. Celebrating years of loving, cherished moments, through the good and difficult times of a shared life together. We, as a couple get to experience this gift of marriage, love and family. This painting, of the bouquet of flowers represent a beauty that values the love and commitment that two lives continue to share in strength and unity.
