Kindred Post at Christmas

Hollis Kitchin is a local Juneauite, when she is not running her boutique she is painting the dramatic ecosystems around her. From the oceans deep to the jagged peaks she deftly uses water colors to mirror uncertainty and spontaneity of the Alaskan landscape.
For Hollis water color is a perfect medium to interpret the ever shifting mood of the Alaskan ecosystem. It shifts and dissolves like mist rising through the forest. The hard lines create a hard structure that is reminiscent of mountain peaks bursting upwards through the cloud layer.
