Northern Lights



This is my first painting bound for the Arctic, specifically to Yellowknife. It is a portrait of an inspiring family who currently resides there...I've always been drawn to this part of the world, as my husband comes from Alaska. Ever since we were 16 years old, he would tell me about the incredible Northern Lights...Majestic, mystical & incredibly ethereal. My father went to Nunavut to meet with elders there not long ago, & he also came back with tales of nights that were like day, & traditional lifestyles that are unchanged for generations. Under these incredible stars, one can't help but to feel humble & to feel one with the universe...(This painting measures at 30" x 30" & is Sold.)
