Dots and Dashes

An Epic Journey

I’ve been a bit negligent with the upkeep of this blog however for good reason, I put my art work on the back burner and devoted the summer to a long sought destination…the Arctic Ocean in Northern Alaska by motorcycle. It was an incredible journey to a unique part of the continent filled with warm people, cool temperatures and thousands of miles of gravel road adventures. I can’t help but think that some essence of Alaska will find it’s way into my paintings, for now here are a few pictures of the trip of my lifetime.

Salmom Glacier, 22 miles of ice winding through the mountains.

Prudhoe Bay, end of the Haul Road north, where the cold winds blow in off the Arctic Ocean and the sun shines at midnight.
