I think that will be my title ...
Titles are sometimes hard to "discover",
but I was thinking about how hot the rest of the country is
and even though the sun has been out here in SE AK
for a couple of days,
it is not as warm as "down south".

On Saturday (8/5/2017) Plein Rein,
our local plein air group, 8 or 9 of us this time,
traveled out to the
CAROLE BAKER of Gustavus, AK.
(Be sure to click on that link to see Carole's fabulous works
on her dailypaintworks site
and if interested,
the ADNR link to find out about the Artist-In-Residence program!)
The cabin's windows look out onto Lynn Canal
and the Chilkat Mountains,
a gorgeous location for an artist's cabin!
We had a perfect morning of painting and then a delicious lunch.
I must share some of the photos of the day.

Beautiful! Not sure the size ... 12 x 18?

|Chilkat Mts and Lynn Canal|
|This scene attracted me because of the dark forest shadow |
and the reflections in the tannin-colored water.
|I painted the rest of the painting with palette knife after this shot.|
|Spawned out chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) |
right there next to where I was painting.
Not a wonderful smell ...

(I changed a few things as the paint covered the paper.)
