Original Acrylic, 10x12
I have painted this particular scene on a 24x36 canvas.as well Our winters are so long in the Yukon, it is nice to paint a warm sun melting the cold ice. Break-up is quite a process; I have seen ice on the lakes right up to June and the flowers are blooming right along side it.
This piece was painted in memory of a local named Dot Rogers, she had such a sunny warm personality, everyone loved her. I thought of her the whole time I was painting this work. She passed away after her battle with liver cancer a few years ago. The painting was donated to a benefit fundraiser to help raise money for those who need treatments for cancer etc. in other cities to offset their expenses.
