"I've driven by this spot hundreds of times and today I decided to stop," Duluth artist Patrick Glander said while working on an oil painting Monday afternoon on the Osaugie Trail in Superior. The artist set up his easel and looked over the Superior Bay toward Graymont and Lafarge. A painter by trade, working at the Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art in Duluth, Glander was in town to visit a friend's studio when on the way home temptation kicked in and he had to stop to work out a sketch. "You never know when it will be the last nice day," Glander laughed.
