I made this piece last March for the "Art in the Arctic" show celebrating Alaska's National Wildlife Refuges and the opportunities they provide us for experiencing wilderness. Yesterday a young couple saw it at another show and stood looking at it a long time. I described the techniques used to make it and the experience of being in that country north of the Brooks Range during the bright sunny days of March and April, the patterns of the drifted snow and the vastness of the place. To my surprise and delight they purchased the piece, and I am so happy it has found a good home.

Wow! Just returned from the Polar Bazaar at the Anchorage Museum. What a wonderful experience all around--so many nice people, such a beautiful venue and so much creativity and craftsmanship--plus Alaska authors and a lively zine scene on site. Thank you, Anchorage! I hope to see you again next year-- 😊
