This is a good example of Alaska artist Gail Niebrugg’s painting style before the accident that led to bed rest and the development of the unique technique of pointillism she uses today.  “Storm” is painted from a research trip to one of the artists favorite places, the Denali Highway, a 135 mile gravel road connecting the Richardson Highway to the Parks Highway in the Copper River Basin of Alaska.  “As an artist,” she said, “I am partial to this area during the fall when colors are at their peak and incredible, majestic storms sweep across the vast, wide open tundra.  This highway closed during winter, although it is a great area to explore by snow machine I still prefer fall”.  Sometime in mid 1980’s Niebrugge grew tired of experimenting with watercolor and dug out her old tubes of acrylic and began spreading thin layers of luscious paint on canvas with large brushes.  She enjoyed painting this way, it was a treat to use brushes in acrylic after her forced exclusion for years and years of palette knife only.  “Storm” remains as an example of this period in artist Niebrugge’s career, and brings wonderful memories of time spent exploring the Denali Highway Alaska wilderness.
