We offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more and a flat-rate shipping charge of $9.95 on orders less than $100.

Shipping artwork requires special packaging and attention. If you are ordering framed prints, canvas prints, or originals, we will add a surcharge to cover this extra packaging, delivery cost, and insurance, even if your order totals $100 or more.

As you can imagine, it is much more expensive to deliver a large, framed print than it is to deliver an unframed print on paper. We want your items to arrive in perfect condition, no matter their size. If your item requires a surcharge it will be noted on the product page as you make your selection, and in your shopping cart when you check out. Our surcharges are based on product weight and size, and reflect our actual costs to safely deliver your artwork.

If you’d like to pick up your order in Duluth or Grand Marais to save on shipping or surcharge fees, call 218-387-2491 and place your order by phone. We welcome all phone orders!

Questions? Call 218-387-2491. We’re here to help and available daily from 10-5 Mon-Sat and 10-4 Sun (CST).

Driftwood: Stories Picked Up Along the Shore

By Howard Sivertson

Howard Sivertson at Sivertson

Paintings and stories by Howard Sivertson. Published by Lake Superior Port Cities, 2008. Hardcover, 93 pages.

Award-winning artist Howard Sivertson combines his painting skills with his vivid storyteller’s imagination to bring to life the bygone days and colorful people of the picturesque settlements along Lake Superior’s shores. Like the driftwood collected by a beachcomber, Sivertson’s tales and paintings are delightful treasures for the seeker to discover. Follow him as he traces the everyday joys and hardships of the earliest adventurers in this breathtakingly beautiful wilderness. His vibrant style and inimitable art take the reader along while greenstoning, racing a lake squall, celebrating Boat Day, and working in the fishing camps. Howard shares his family legacy and lifelong passion for the splendor and solitude of the islands and communities of Lake Superior and, through his masterworks, ensures this heritage will never be lost.

Howard Sivertson

Raised as a third generation commercial fisherman on Isle Royale, Howard worked hard harvesting trout and herring from the cold waters of Lake Superior. Those impressions and experiences inspired his studies at the Minneapolis School of Art and the University of Minnesota. He then spent 25 years in commercial art before settling in Grand Marais, where he has been painting and writing ever since. Howard works primarily in watercolor and oils either on location or in his studio. Both a landscape and narrative artist, he paints the scenes and historical tales of the North Shore, Isle Royale, and the BWCA. "Artists are natural storytellers using painted pictures instead of word pictures."
