Brotherhood Cabin

IMG_9628This is a little cabin in Juneau, Alaska. I’m not sure if it has an official name but we call it Brotherhood cabin. It is located right on the side of the road but its backdrop is Mendenhall Glacier. It is not directly at the base of the glacier but almost appears to be. Therefore it is always an interesting  view. Sometimes the Glacier is beaming in the sunshine and the cabin is shaded. Or sometimes the Glacier will be cloaked in fog and there will be a beam of sun shining on the little cabin. In this shot, I liked how cool the grasses and Glacier were yet there was a nice swath of warm grasses and shrubs. If you are not familiar with the area, you could not tell that the Glacier is in the background. I was not able to make it fit in a picture of this size, but I’d like to do it in a larger size and put it in.

About Artwithmycoffee

I live in Juneau, Alaska where the inspiration in nature abounds! I love taking photos of this beautiful place and then painting them. In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork. A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, mhttp://thecompleteartist.ning.com/ by Richard Robinson, and http://www.dailypaintworks.com/ with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting. This year my goal is to paint almost daily and to try to get outdoors more and paint en plein air (or out doors from life). I also hope to come up with something interesting to blog about it all ( =
