In this issue, we present the work of White Bear Lake Area High School student Helen Nelson. Nelson’s painting is titled “Pillsbury” (Acrylic on board, 2018).
Nelson says, “This is a painting of the area near the Pillsbury factory in Minneapolis, behind some silos. I painted this picture from a photo I took while visiting my cousin’s apartment shortly after Thanksgiving.
I chose this image because I enjoyed the beauty of the rain on the tiles and the overall moody atmosphere of the city at night. I really enjoy painting with acrylics, and had a lot of fun painting a cityscape for the first time.”
