Winter Solstice was yesterday, and everybody in the Northern Hemisphere (even my uncle who lives in California) is a little relieved that we will be heading towards more daylight soon. Although the days are short and the weather is cold, it can be really beautiful outside, if you make sure to get out during the daylight hours. I find myself hibernating this time of year and I can’t seem to get everything done that I can during the long days of summer. If you do get out you can be rewarded with amazing light. The sun doesn’t get very high in the sky, creating dramatic lighting.
My favorite brewery in Anchorage, Midnight Sun Brewing, celebrates the long days of summer and the short days of winter with special beers on tap. So I thought that an MSBC growler with the sun logo would be fitting for a Solstice painting. This painting is also perfect for my upcoming art show at the Loft at MSBC in about two weeks. I invite you to join us for the First Firkin Friday party on January 6th, 2017! I need to find out what the brewers have planned for the firkin.
