Denali, Late August '07
This painting combines my favorite and most lasting experiences of my residency in Denali — such as finding wolf and bear tracks along the rivers, eating the blueberries and trying the soap berries that the bears were eating at that time, enjoying the playfulness of the magpies and watching and waiting for the green transport buses. The hill across from Sable Mountain was a favorite place to visit in the evening and since the park was coming into fall colors it would be golden in the evening light. In all it was a wonderful experience, one that will influence my work for years to come.
