Years ago, I spent four successive summers with a good friend in Houghton, Michigan up on the Upper Peninsula. (aka “da Yoop” to Yoopers). One night we went canoe-ing in the canal off Lake Superior and the northern lights performed. What a magical night . . . I still get goose bumps thinking of it.
That experience and the travel notebook my friend Scotty made after one of his Alaska trips, inspired this new silk painting I’ve listed on Trunkt and Etsy today. It’s a beautiful aerial scene of a cold, cold river cutting through an autumn forest with the northern lights above.
It’s painted on silk noil, raw silk with a nubby textile, and lined with silk shantung. It’s presented on a bamboo textile hanger and will look dramatic yet restful in any interior decor.
14.5″ wide and 60″ long. More views available on Etsy.
