Alaskan Brownie...

5"x7" oil

Spent several weeks in Alaska this past summer,
and painted about 20 plein air studies of the
beautiful scenes of mountains, Gastineau
Channel, and Mendenhall Glacier...but quite often
with one eye out for the possibilities of "you know
who" showing up.

Actually quite safe, especially if you follow the
advice and good sense of the locals, but you still
hear the stories...and you know they are there.

I was about seven miles off the island called, "The
Fortress of Bears" or Admiralty Island, which has
three thousand brown bears. I was surprised to
find out that southeast Alaska has about 16,000
black bears as well, and we were more likely to
see one of those.
