Here is the finished painting, I have titled it “Kennicott-Stabilized.” It represents all of the work that the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park has done to protect this historic monument todate. I am pleased with the painting. It is made up of thousands and thousands of tiny dots, a technique called pointillism. Next, the painting will be delivered to Chris Arend Photography in Anchorage to be documented, after that I will do the final gel medium varnish that will intensify the color. I wait until the photography is complete before I paint the finish gel medium because it can cause unnecessary reflections. After the gel medium dries, I will select a suitable frame.
Thank you for watching my progress on this major work, you can see how time consuming my technique of pointillism is, and how detail oriented I am as an artist. I am proud of this painting, it has been a labor of love.
