Got the Fever

Hard to believe it’s February already. After a string of bitter cold days, including one night that dropped down to -30 degrees, we are back on a temporary warming trend. We had a nearly 70 degree temperature shift in about three days. This morning started with rain and heavy fog.

Hitting -30 degrees is a relatively rare event, even for the frozen state of Minnesota. I googled to find out the last time it was that cold. Turned out to be February of 1996. I was living in my first home (a townhouse) and I remember the kitchen sink waste pipe froze, so I had to pour boiling water down the drain to thaw it. Fun times.

But enough about the weather. After a six week absence, I decided to start posting on Instagram again, featuring my new After the Symphony collection, soon to be an exhibition at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts. (Oh please, oh please, oh please) Trying to think positive here.

This particular image responded really well to color shifting and I have three or four variations of it, all of which I like. I’ve got all ten in the series printed out and I am anxious to get them framed. I want to keep printing large size images, even though I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them all. It’s like a fever. Maybe cabin fever.
