Driftwood and Sunset paintings.



Click to buy

 While living in Juneau, Alaska I spotted this interesting driftwood tree on Douglas island and made a pencil sketch of it. And a couple of days ago I made a small painting (just discovered that Georgia O'Keefe's Blue II looks somewhat similar, but much bigger size. Nice to have some similarities with famous. LOL ). So here it is, Driftwood,  9x12 inches, acrylic on canvas panel:





Another painting I did yesterday also has Alaskan origin - Sunset in Juneau, Alaska. It looks almost tropical, so bright colors.
9x12 inches, painted on canvas panel with acrylic, varnished.

Photographs from my tavel to Barrow, Alaska (cont.)


Artctic Ocean, frozen waves under the snow.
And people have sense of humor here too - those are summer cabins a little bit outside of Barrow, palms of course not real - they made of baleen (plates for filtering food from water).

Unfortunately, I didn't get to see polar bear, although when taxi driver was showing us around they said on a radio that a polar bear was spotted near high school, but when we got there it was gone.

Photographs from my travel to Barrow, Alaska.


I decided to show once in a while photographs from my past traveling, since I didn't have a blog that time, but I have lots of interesting photographs.
Today I want to show you few photos taken in the most north town of Alaska and United States - Barrow. I had an occasion to get there in January, 2004 for a few days. It was cold: -50F and windchill -60F. Do you think it's a midnight? Wrong, it's a noon, with a moon hanging over Arctic Ocean, frozen of course.
Life is still going even in those harsh conditions.
