John Burt House, Marquette Michigan

This home is just down the street from my house. Days liek today when I cannot concentrate I can be found heading downhill, past the John Burt House to the waterfront, Lake Superior and it’s blue waves. Marquette is full of contrasts, red rock, sandstone, iron and blue water. The textures creep into everyting artistic.

The John Burt House is directly downhill from my home. On days like today when I have a difficult time sitting still and concetration is sketchy at best, I will head out for the waterfront. Marquette is full of contrasts, red rock, sandstone, iron ore, and blue waves. The textures pervade and influence all artistic media.
