Log Cabin Pen and Ink Drawing

Original pen and ink drawing “Alaskan Gingerbread” by Gail Niebrugge, Sold.

I rarely sketch or paint plein air today, but in my early years in the Wrangell-St. Elias region of Alaska, I enjoyed drawing and painting on location. I made this ink drawing in the fall when temperatures hovered near freezing and the water on my pen nib often froze. What attracted me to this scene was the cast shadow from the moose antlers. Antlers are often used as architectural adornment in rural Alaska.

More tomorrow,

Gail Niebrugge, Alaska Wilderness Artist
