I always love finding a new post by you, Kes, and this one is especially lovely. Your connections to family and place couldn't help but come out in your work, and these examples feel very strong to me. Looking forward to seeing the results of your collaboration with Peggy.

Thanks so much, Tom and Peggy, for your kind comments! I'm really excited myself to see how the collaboration with Peggy--which at this point is just envisioned as an exhibition, and not a book--will unfold. The exhibition opens at the Alaska Humanities Forum on September 11, 2015, with a reception from 5:30-8:00 pm, and we're scheduled to do a talk at 6:30.

Love the new stuff as always. I love the translucent trees in Vespertine and Horizon and fluid light Horizon is mesmerizing. So beautiful! Three Blues has those fabulous clouds and colors (esp. purple) reflected on the mountain. I'm sure the texture is even better close up than it looks on the screen. Thank you so much for sharing. Looking forward to your book with Peggy.


The portrait of that young family touches me, especially knowing how hard they're working to build their house and their lives. Splendid!

I love how the up-close view of Mt. Dickey contrasts with the far-off view of Denali. Your wish for our collaboration mirrors mine, a chance to see what happens when two imaginations call to one another. What an honor to have my words conversing with your paintings!
