To make this painting, I stood in the same spot as I did to paint Flattop Mountain, but I looked in the opposite direction, for a panoramic view of Anchorage. Even as I set up, I could see the weather closing in. Within minutes, the rain hit so hard that even an umbrella couldn't save me! Even though the painting and the palette were swimming in water, I managed to make this sketch. Good thing oil and water don't mix!

8" x 10" oil on linen panel
