This postcard below reads in part:
Dear Papa and Mama,
Hello from Ketchikan! My painting/cruise has been going well so far. I'm learning a lot of things as well as enjoying the cruise experience. The building on this postcard is on a street called Creek Street. It is actually on stilts and the "road" is actually a boardwalk above the creek.
Tomorrow we are going to go to port in Juneau! This is quite the incredible trip.The small space allotted on the postcard doesn't encourage great prose, but I hope people enjoy these little paintings, regardless of what I write on the back.
I guess this closes out my series of posts about the Great Alaskan Plein Air Retreat Cruise! I should thank again the Painted Ladies, who have been fabulous at organizing this. And thanks also to Jonny Luczycki who tolerated my socially awkward self as a cabin mate. And of course all the artist friends who have gone on this amazing journey together with me. Thanks guys, I'm sure we'll cross paths again!
