Ketchikan's Creek Street
"Ketchikan's Creek Street" – Although overflowing with tourist attractions, the historic past and natural beauty of "Alaska's First City" is well preserved, especially in the boardwalk buildings and rustic setting of Creek Street. Ketchikan is located along the west shore of Revillagigedo Island on the Inside Passage shipping route. It is still only accessible by air or sea and is a popular port of call for just about all cruise ship lines. The town has a stellar reputation for "embracing their visitors with exuberance". This painting was an extremely challenging project because of the assortment and varying shades of colors, both natural and from the unique architecture, that were enhanced by the heavy shadows and bright sun in the crystal blue sky.
