Trying to go nocturnal in North Pole, AK

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.

Thanks. I am quite excited. My husband got me a French Easel for Christmas so I feel equipped. Looking forward to a future paint out.
