Trying to go nocturnal in North Pole, AK

"Thanks, Beth. It was fun and strange to be painting at night with blazing sun bouncing off the plane. This place in summer could the the life and death of a plein air painter--how long can one go without sleep with so much beauty abounding?"

"Martha, I like the balance of the plane; it has a lot of tension. You painted the plane with feeling; and it appears to want to fly off.  The colors  At Night there are so surprising. Have fun ; keep painting."

Hi Martha,
I've been told I need all the friends I can get. And especially a resourceful one like the gal sitting on the wave-runner with the umbrella. Brilliant photo. Thanks.
