"Nocturnal" original painting

15" x  30"  acrylic on canvas 

The extreme cold and the darkness were powerful influences over my mood and my energy. To cope with the environment I developed a ritual of walking through the woods during the cold, dark winter nights. The physical excercise and fresh air were energizing and uplifitng. It was good for my mental health to get out of the cabin and embrace my surroundings. I was often alone but instead of dwelling on it I was able to focus on the beauty of the scenery that surrounded me. I found peace and joy in the simplicity of my surroundings and comfort in the company of the forest. -Sue Dranchak

"Nocturnal" is currently on display and available for sale at the Well St. Art Company in Fairbanks, AK
