Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.

Minto Bridge plein-air


After Dawson City, we drove toward Whitehorse but decided to explore a road 
called The Silver Trail first.

Just as we got on that road, we saw several black bear on the road!



 
We found a campground called 5-Mile Lake

... and one night in the tent I couldn't fall asleep and it was light
enough to sketch.












 The next day we explored the silver mining town of Keno and the shipping port of Mayo, 
a village on the Stewart River.








We found a cool bridge and a dreamy painting spot!


omg, see what I mean? The bugs weren't even bad!









Thankfully Matt took some photos - this painting also is not finished
 but I think it will be a joy to paint (it was fun doing it this far)!
