Picture of the Day: “The Gate”

I am not a giant fan of abstract art. That said, however, sometimes a piece speaks to me, or perhaps I’ve seen it enough that it becomes familiar, interpretable, and likeable.

Today’s picture is of such a piece. This is “The Gate”, by David von Schlgell, and it stands at the Thompson Hill overlook, the rest stop on Interstate 35 that overlooks and welcomes you to the city of Duluth.

Thus, the themes of the abstract art and what it is trying to invoke are easily made clear. Maybe that’s why I like it so much.

You can see some of the city downslope of the overlook on the right hand of the picture.
