Original SOLD,  “Sweet Repast” is available as a small print, the large limited edition print is SOLD OUT.

Here is an example where staying flexible and making lemon aid out of lemons paid off very well for Alaska artist Gail Niebrugge. The Mc Carthy Road is famous for flat tires, it is a rare trip without getting at least one, sometimes two, depending on how thin the tread. The locals know to carry a good spare tire and an extra one in order to make good time on the road. Waiting for a tow truck is not an option. Without cell phone service, getting help depends on word of mouth or the skills and tools of good samaritans. With this background, picture the artist with a flat tire at the location in the above painting, sans swans. Pretty country. The true picture is a narrow road, bumpy and muddy, with the Niebrugge vehicle off the edge stuck in the muck. The last thing we were thinking was; “oh, what a pretty scene!” Quite the contrary. As time passed the artist finally started to evaluate the landscape, and imagined how wonderful it would look in a painting with Trumpeter Swans on the pond. And so it came to pass….

    After all these years of loving Sweet Repast, including the past 14 months of sleeping under it… I never heard the story before. (Also apparently missed it on your website all this time, too). Anyway, what a great story!

  2. Thanks Sharlane, It is so nice to have collectors like yourself who have been with me from almost the beginning. You are truly a gem. Gail
