"Deep Thoughts, Shallow Waters" was created as a studio piece following a weekend at Byer's Lake. It was part of Alaska State Park's inaugural art in the parks initiative. It was an exciting event where more than 40 Alaskan artists gathered together in tents, campers or nearby hotel rooms for a weekend of sun, rain, campfires and of course great artistic comraderie. Mt McKinley even showed up for the event! This piece, however, came from a quiet morning before most campers were up, I was out sipping coffee on the dock.
I hope it brings to you a peaceful feeling of reflecting on the good things in life as it did me.
