Our luxuriously soft blankets are available in two different sizes and feature incredible artwork on the top surface. The bottom surface is white. Our 100% polyester blankets are available in two different styles: plush fleece and sherpa fleece. Plush fleece blankets are soft and fluffy on both sides, whereas sherpa blankets are smooth like a soft sweater on the artwork side (i.e. shorter threads) which provides for a sharper image. Looking for a recommendation? Go with a 60" x 80" plush fleece blanket. It's soft and luxurious on both sides... the artwork looks incredible... and the size is just right for everyone.
I painted this oil painting during the dead of Alaska's icy winter. A friend and I sat in the running car to stay warm, with her young children entertaining themselves in the back seat. Out attention spans were rather short, but we came determined to paint the beautiful Mat-Su Valley in winter,
The opportunity provided a few minutes of sheer joy of focus that artists crave! I found myself adjusting the scene before me to convey the low golden light that is often prevalent during our long cold winter months, I moved mountains and trees to suit my purpose. It was completely instinctual, with very little conscious thought except for my initial choice of colors for my palette. Cool blues, warm violets and neutrals accentuated the vivid gold light lining the clouds.
Such moments of introspective calm and peace continue to be the life-blood of my existence. Hang this painting in your home, office or workplace to bring a peaceful energy to your environment.
