I have put together a new calendar for 2018, it is for sale for $20 at the Juneau City Museum Giftstore. It is 8.5 x 11 with a metal spiral binding with a hole printed on card stock, so its a reasonable sturdy calendar with a big month page to write your important stuff in!
It includes some new paintings, as well as some favorites from previous years. I have some of my favorite artist’s birthdays notes, as well as significant dates such as Alaska holidays and Juneau events.
I have used Tlingit words where appropriate, as well as the lunar calendar month names used in Kake (each place may have it’s own names for a month). The Tlingit orthography (characters used to correctly spell a language) is not correct in this post, I was not able to find the correct typography to use, I will try and edit this, as there are several characters in Tlingit that are not in the standard font, but are essential to correctly write the words.
This past year I have been fascinated by portrait painting, and have spent more painting time on that subject than landscapes, although landscapes are still a favorite subject.
I plan to share some of my favorite portrait studies in a later post, so check back if you are interested, I will also add a gallery to my website.
Modifying my website is somewhat challenging, especially when I don’t do it very often, so I hope to get better at updating the website, so that its easier and hopefully encourage people to come back often.
Here are the calendar pages:
