Sue Dranchak   -45F Alaska

   Exploring and experiencing nature through my paintings is my life. I love the outdoors and I love to travel. I have become somewhat of a snowbird these days as I divide my time, energy and attention between my two worlds of Alaska and Arizona. My paintings portray the mountains, glaciers and  boreal forest of Alaska as well as the cactus, canyons and desert imagery of the southwest. I work primarily in the studio and have recently taken to working in the outdoors in "plein air" style. This is my journal about the adventures, challenges and progress of my "snowbird artist" lifestyle.   -Sue Dranchak
