Sunset, Alaska

IMG_9947

The dawning of spring was bitterly cold the year we visited Alaska. Of course, the Alaskan peoples were all overjoyed for the warmth of 0-20 degrees Fahrenheit! One of the most amazing things to me was the whiteness of the land. Being a Southern Californian (fifth generation, I’ll have you know) I’m acquainted, but not familiar with snow. The experience north was something I’d never seen before. The simplicity of the palate but rich texture of shade and light was dominant in the landscape.

An Alaskan Sky

One of the joys of visiting Alaska was the surprises of it’s landscape. The atmosphere was often thick with sea air and clouds. This thickness blurred the hills and mountains in the distance, causing an illusion of the sun’s disappearance.

This Alaskan sunset is watercolor on paper, 9 x 6 inches.

Cooling

Cool down with this delicate view of Alaska in Springtime. While the summer heat continues here in California, I’ll be dreaming of chilly sunrises and shadowy forests. (of course, once it’s cold here, I’ll want it to be warm again!)
