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.
The glacier fed, Little Susitna River in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, is a favorite painting subject for Alaskan artists. Lovingly nicknamed The Little Su, its cold turquoise waters meander down nourishing the land and providing visual delight to plein air painters, and photographers alike. As I painted in this favored public look out, I was tempted to paint the more picturesque view upstream. But as I looked downstream, I saw the highway overpass cutting through the landscape, spindly trees and branches barely containing the erosion from the overflowing spring thaw. The composition of man made versus nature intrigued me and I began to paint.
As the painting progressed my mind started wandering (as it often does) to the symbols before me: bridge, rocks, new growth, and the living water feeding the ground and resurrecting all in its path from their long winter's sleep. It was an amazing reminder of the restorative power of God's word.
This particular colorful painting is painted with thick impasto paint, using a palette knife in the impressionist style. Let it be a reminder for you too, and the restorative power of water, and the Word.
