Minneapolis Aerial View Photo Painting was prepared from a photograph captured in late afternoon as my airplane prepared to land in Mpls in June 2016. I digitally painted the photo to give it a slightly vintage look.
More info on Minneapolis:
Minneapolis lies on both banks of the Mississippi River, just north of the river's confluence with the Minnesota River, and adjoins Saint Paul, the state's capital. The city is abundantly rich in water, with thirteen lakes, wetlands, the Mississippi River, creeks and waterfalls, many connected by parkways in the Chain of Lakes and the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway. It was once the world's flour milling capital and a hub for timber. In the 21st century, it is the primary business center between Chicago and Seattle, with Minneapolis proper containing America's fifth-highest concentration of Fortune 500 companies. As an integral link to the global economy, Minneapolis is categorized as a global city. Noted for its music and performing arts scenes, Minneapolis is home to the award-winning Guthrie Theater, the historic First Avenue nightclub, and was home to Prince.
The name Minneapolis is attributed to Charles Hoag, the city's first schoolteacher, who combined mni, a Dakota Sioux word for water, and polis, the Greek word for city.
