Ink Drawings; two old Alaska Trucks

Here are the two pen and ink drawings I’ve completed so far, these old trucks are hidden away in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, Alaska.  The larger drawing is the truck at May Creek, a roadless wilderness outpost for the national park.  During the late 1930’s during the mining era in this region a railroad served the remote community of McCarthy, Alaska, built to haul huge quantities of copper ore from the Kennicott Copper Mine.  From McCarthy there was a road to May Creek that included a large bridge spanning the Nizina River, that served the gold mining exploration during that era.  The bridge washed out many years ago and the roads are largely overgrown, today most folks use small aircraft for access or snow machines during the winter.  I have been painting the contemporary lifestyle, landscape, wildlife and history of this remote wilderness region of Alaska for more than 30 years.  It is my passion.
