Alaskan Landscape in Powdered Glass
Anyway, there are many ruins on the island, including the old pumphouse, the strangest-looking building I've ever seen. It looks like one of those tall, skinny caricatures of a house that a little child might draw, but it's real. I'm not sure why it has such an unusual shape, but it sits out in the channel, surrounded by water at high tide, and lifted on a small spit of rock and sand at low tide. I love it, and photograph it all the time.
It made for an excellent, dramatic subject for my second frit drawing. Can't wait to fire this one.
