In the Cove, Sitka, 12 x 16
Well, my son Matt and his wonderful family are moving from Orcas Island, WA to Sitka, AK next month. He went to college there, and fell in love with the pristine forests and seaside vistas, as well as the Alaska vibe. So, he and his sweet wife Ann are moving back...and taking little Sarah (4) and Eli (1)...so, Michael and I will now be trekking to Alaska! Above is a small study I did this week from a photo taken in Sitka about 10 years ago (not that it looks particularly Alaska-ish, whatever that might be). I am thinking it would be nice to stay up there for a month or so in the summer and seek out some good painting spots...we are learning to embrace this new development.
