“Chitina Skyline” original painting

Acrylic on rag board 8.5″ x 24″ Original painting SOLD

Late September and early October are the best time to hang out at Town Lake in Chitina, Alaska, to watch dozens of magnificent Trumpeter Swan gather before they fly south on their annual migration. As Alaska artist Gail Niebrugge sat waiting one evening she noticed the low sunlight illuminating the ancient buildings downtown, causing them to glow against the dark cast shadows of the distant mountains, and created this lovely scene.  Niebrugge painted it later from her research materials with acrylic and watercolor in her Copper Center studio.
