Oh, yes, here we go again…
It’s “Denali 1”!
I called it that because I figured I would make more versions of Mount Denali in the future… and, actually, I did– remember art piece of the week #8, “The Great One”? Yeah, that one actually came after this.
Of course, though, I took this and many other photos of Mt. Denali (aka the tallest mountain in North America) on my Alaskan adventure back in 2016, when I got to spend a whole week in the beautiful state with my brother, sister in law, and niece who was only 1 back then!
Seriously, though, I love Alaska, and I would totally just live there if I had the chance.
Maybe one day, though, you know, when I hit the bestseller book lists and also win the lottery twice so I have enough cash money to fly back and forth to the lower 48 (as the Alaskans call it) every other weekend.
Okay, but on a more serious note, guys…
Whenever people ask me what Alaska’s really like, or what stood out to me the most when I was there, I always answer like this right away…
It smells great.
Yeah, I had to put that up in quotes and everything.
Really, though, as soon as I stepped out of the airport after arriving there, I just got hit with this, like, super amazing scent. It’s really kind of hard to describe, and I’ve never smelled anything like it, but if I had to, I’d say it’s like… fresher than fresh. Pine-scented Yankee Candles times 100. Plus a lot of wetness, but like, the good kind that comes from the forests behind the Garden of Eden.
My favorite smell is Alaska.
Also, back on track here… this painting is for sale over on my Etsy site! And, remember, as always, get 15% off of it (and/or anything else) if you’re interested with coupon code BLOG15!
Now, sorry, but I gotta get some more paintings of Denali going…
Please let me know what you thought/think of this beautiful piece!

Very nice! You’ve been bitten by the Alaska bug, haha! It shows in the quality of your paintings.

I know, and I literally got a mosquito bite the size of a baseball on my forehead when I was there. Thanks again!
