An Alaska landscape painting featuring the first hints of spring. Brilliant light reflects off the melting snow, foliage, birch, aspens, and evergreens in this original oil painting by contemporary impressionist artist, Talya Johnson.
Behind the Canvas
Sometimes with our long Alaskan winters, spring can sneak up on us suddenly, unexpectedly. When I'm paying attention, I first notice it in the color of the light as the sun reaches higher and higher each day from its depressed lurking low on the horizon. Bits of winter foliage begin to appear beneath the deep banks of snow.
Alaskans living in my area normally don't see green until the end of May save for the dull darks of mature evergreens. Instead, our spring colors are the deep turquoise of the melting snow and the white birch trees(and aspen trees)reflecting the brilliant yellow warmth of the sun. Red violets flowers can be seen by the keen of eyes from the branches of the deciduous trees. And brilliant ocher from last season's grasses and undergrowth dances in the wind and new warmth from the sun.
The year I painted this I hadn't noticed these subtle changes. I was too engulfed in personal and family difficulties. Imagine my surprise, delight and joy, as one spring day, my eyes opened to this quiet view. A little rural corner of Alaskan nature that looked rather ordinary to the everyday bystander took on new meaning, and I quickly put down color notes in the sketchbook I kept at my side.
I completed the painting at home in one flurry using my painting tool of choice, the palette knife. I was eager to convey the light and hope I had experienced that spring day.
Bring the image of this special light-filled Alaskan landscape painting home to remind you also that spring will surely return.
