The Great Northern by tinctureillustration

Winnipeg, Manitoba, CA


Something about the bold name of this lil white bean whisks up images of campfires and pine trees and the Brawny paper towel guy and buffalo plaid and Paul Bunion and blue oxen and cozy log cabins with plumes of smoke rising from stone chimneys and cast iron pots bubbling on wood stoves and cool, dark cupboards full of onions, potatoes, garlic and plump glass jars full of that summer’s preserves....and tins of BEANS! I think I’ll pull on some woolly socks and settle in to do another sketch of the Great Northern today and perhaps try a recipe as it is minus 38 Celsius today here in my Great Northern town!
