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.


Grey Mountain Adventure

Grey Mtn Adventure       10 x 8 inches       oil on canvas panel

Yikes, where did the time go? It was just summer,
now it is autumn.

We headed north for some sun. 
That sounds funny
 but it is a true fact that SE Alaska 
has had a VERY rainy summer.

Our trip yielded lots of sun, 
tons of hiking
 (our friends mountain biked)
and very good adventures.

We ferried north to Skagway, Alaska 
and drove the Klondike Hwy 
to Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, Canada!

Eric and Julia - mtn bikers extraordinaire!


We got to the top of Grey Mtn! Whitehorse in the distance.

From the ferry LeConte on the way home from Skagway.

I even painted a picture.

Getting started with paint

Not too many bugs and no wind!

I struggled with this painting a bit. 
Could not get the road to look like a road.

It looked like a river!

anyhoo ... happy about the painting anyway.

Thanks to everyone who checks in to see what is going on in SE Alaska
or wherever I am ...

Happy painting 
happy autumn!

Thanks so much Chris - it was such a fun weekend! Wish I had a few more days to hike and paint ... actually the colors are probably much better now and in a week than when we were there. I do appreciate you reading (and commenting on) my blog!
