This painting won the Knickerbocker Award for Transparent Watercolor at the Knickerbocker Artists 36th Annual Open Exhibition, Salmagundi Club, New York, in 1986. Alaska artist Gail Niebrugge painted it from her neighbors garden in Copper Center, Alaska. With the continuous summer sunlight vegetables grow to huge sizes, and gardens are lush and plentiful. Funny, when she entered this painting in the All Alaska Juried Competition the visiting juror from Los Angeles commented that he wanted to see subjects that were very Alaskana, and not something you could find anywhere. Little did he know.
