The 45 oil paintings in this collection are Paquette’s re-exploration, after having lived in five places near its shores, of the entire length of the Mississippi River.
It started as a project to paint images of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area – honoring the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016 – and ended with an additional 2,200 miles being added to its scope.
