The new Operation Arctic Care 2010 print is available and ready for purchase. It is a limited edition of 100 signed and numbered prints on good quality photo paper and shows the northwestern portion of Alaska with 12 images to commemorate the 12 villages where the mission took place. Price is $35 (including postage within the continental US) for one print. Some have requested more than one, and I can get up to three in one tube for one $5 mailing charge if they are going to the same address. The size is 16x20, so it can be framed in a standard size. My profound thanks to the US Air Force Art Program for inviting me on this mission and to all of our men and women in the military who dedicate their expertise to help others.
For ordering information, please contact me through this blog or at priscillapatterson@ wavecable.com.

Finally finished the painting that shares my memories of Operation Arctic Care in Kotzebue, Alaska last spring. I was only there two days, and there was so much going on, it was difficult to select just 12 images for the 12 villages that were actually visited by our service men and women on the medical teams. There will be more paintings to come on an individual basis, but for now, this montage will be scanned and printed once it is dry. More information on the number in the edition as well as the price will follow. Meantime, I am teaching beginning drawing through Peninsula College. This short "blitz" of basics will be followed by six weeks of using water soluble oil paints (not acrylic- water soluble OIL) followed by three weeks of figure drawing basics. After that, spring will be in full bloom and I hope to get out and do some plein air painting.

Christmas came and went! Spent most of December working on the Coast Guard pieces and am now heavily into entries for the ASAA (American Society of Aviation Artists) exhibition. The Forum will be in Pensacola this year and celebrating 100 years of Naval aviation. The other current project is STILL the poster which I hope to have printed of Operation Arctic Care 2010. It is progressing, but the process of doing a montage is daunting. A dozen little stories are superimposed on a map of northwest Alaska, and the Work in Progress is shown here. Tomorrow I'm taking the day off and my husband and I are going to the art store in Port Townsend. Been workin' pretty hard these last few months. By Thursday, paint will be dry enough to get into the details, and I hope to finish up by the end of the week.
