The purpose of this blog is to show off John Lofgreen's Alaskan world through his wildlife art and nature photography. It will explain his painting techniques, and report on his latest activities including exotic journeys around the world.
The latest painting is a 16x20" pair of Bald Eagles in a snowstorm. As usual, the actual painting looks so much better, with subtle glazes, colors, and textures that just dont show up in the photo. It still does'nt have a title yet.
Since this is such a short post, I'll include a few photos from Russian Jack Park a few days ago. This, of course, is an American Robin.
I wish I had more interesting subjects to photograph, but these are about the only things in the neighborhood right now. I have'nt even seen a moose since one almost stomped me a few weeks ago while I was out riding my bicycle. It was being chased by two moronic, shopping center security guards in a golf cart. They chased it down the bike path that I was on. By making a sharp turn into the grass, I avoided a collision.
I also managed to get a few photos of a Snowshoe Hare. They are fairly shy, and not all that common in the city.
There is a small population of them in Russian Jack. I dont see them on most of my visits.
