Well the summer has officially arrived and so far it has been very busy. First we went to Alaska in May with close friends and had a fantastic time. We sent to several towns including Skagway and journeyed up into the Yukon to see bears near the tormented valley, Carcross and Lake Bennent, site of the Gold Rush launching point back in the late 1800s.
This is Emerald Lake near Carcross in Canada that truly has that green cast to the water.
Summer means time to paint outdoors called Plein Air. I did one painting at an older estate in Villanova called Appleford. I did some sketching in the morning along with about 15 other painters and then painted a small watercolor of this building, at one time a tannery.
