SUMMER ADVENTURE - ALASKA

PART 2

INSPIRATION

Inspiration was everywhere I looked as I traveled through different Alaska towns. From the downtown sculptures and park benches to my visit to the totem poles and Clan House at Totem Bight State Historical Park, the art of the Alaskan Native people is all around you. The art is bold with beautiful colors and the distinct shapes create a graphic quality that I love. There are stories and events associated with much of the Native art, particularly the totem poles, and it is difficult to avoid an emotional connection and sense of reverence when standing in a beautiful, wooded landscape viewing them.
