The first day after a new snow Alaska Artist Gail Niebrugge explores nearby country roads in search of subject matter for paintings.  The pristine fresh snow in Wasilla, Alaska, does not last long, soon winds create drifts leaving open fields bare exposing stubby frozen grasses, time is of the essence before the pristine snow is gone.  One year Gail found this beautiful red barn bathed in sunlight, covered with a foot of fresh snow.  The large spruce tree in front created a perfect subject to paint.  Later, back at the studio Niebrugge began sketching the subject using photos as a reference, moving the fence, eliminating outbuildings and placing the big spruce closer to the barn.  During this time she kept a hectic schedule with a calendar full of shows, and presentations, the tiny painting was set aside and soon forgotten in a flat file.  A few weeks ago Niebrugge decided to find unfinished paintings and complete them.  Thus; “Wasilla Barn”was born.
