Fogg paints Stillwater's Fairy Falls in chocolate

Monica Fogg (DHA) has painted a landscape of Stillwater's historic Fairy Falls for Minnesota's sesquicentennial. Working in cocoa butter and food coloring instead of oil paints, Fogg worked from a 1904 photograph of Fairy Falls to create the 18x20 painting.

Fairy Falls is said to be the site where a Chippewa woman and her Sioux lover were killed.

The chocolate painting will be offered in a silent auction on Saturday, May 10, 2008 during the Washington County Historical Society's Minnesota Statehood Celebration, from 7-11 p.m. at the historic Washington County Courthouse.
