Another Rainy Alaska Day

5" x 7" oil on canvas on board
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I just got back from 2 weeks in New York and New Jersey.  I had the opportunity to combine a workshop with a niece's wedding, visit with my sisters, see old friends, visit my husband's childhood home, and see old friends and family of his.  It was a great, and busy, trip.  Now I'm ready for some calm routine.  I didn't have the opportunity to post all of my plein air pieces from Alaska, so I'm going to post those for the next few days.

This is one more piece painted from the bow of the boat, under cover, while it was raining.  It was a challenge to try to show the rain and clouds.  It did stop raining for my photo!

This is a really, small fawn that we saw while beach combing.  Fawns are taught to play dead if separated from their mother.  This one never moved the whole time we were on the beach.

great feeling of heavy clouds and storm. You seem to have caught it just right through beautiful brush work and values.

Gorgeous, Pam! Love those russets in the trees and I think you've captured those rain clouds beautifully!

Janice, Thanks for your visit. Keep Alaska on your wish list!

Jane, Thank you. I love the challenge of painting the rain and clouds.

Thank you Susan, In Colorado The clouds don't sit so close to us. So, it was new to me.

Sherry, Thanks. There was a true darkness in the thick forests.

Nancy, Thank you! The feel of Alaska was WET!

Wonderful! (The picture of the baby deer is amazing! Had no idea they "played dead" like that. Thanks for sharing.)
