Well it’s Alan (AC)’s birthday (BD), and like you I (KC) have faced the daunting task of finding a gift for someone who has everything, and wants nothing. Luckily, I recently discovered the art work of Thunder Bay caricature artist Brian Nieminen. This little photo is a sample of his work – different from the famous line drawings he has created in his career, especially of musicians who have played at the Thunder Bay Blues Festivals over the years. By the time you read this, I will have presented the larger framed version of the above picture, “Fishing Under the Falls” for Alan to hang on the wall of his office.
Brian has a physical gallery here that you may want to visit when you are in Thunder Bay and an online gallery/website.
You know, if Alan really likes this acrylic drawing, perhaps he will present me with some lures for that great little tackle box he gave me for Christmas – but I’m not bitter, no really – I’m not 🙂
