Painting Atmautluak 33

This original painting was inspired by my stay in the village of Atmautluak, Alaska. Unfortunately I was not satisfied with the image and after a year of working on it and fussing with it I painted another image over the top. I’m so glad that I had the foresight to photograph this artwork before it was destroyed. Today I find the painting charming.  I learned a valuable lesson from this experience; Don’t be too quick to judge your work, let it rest awhile, sometimes it takes a few years before the true value of a painting can be determined.

More tomorrow.

    I love Atmauluk,
    I was born and raised there. And I would be picked on. I would never like it I would go over to my teacher and ask her to tell the kids to stop picking on me. So after I told her they stopped and I guess they will need some new stuff there.
