Dog Sledding

T.J. Carabeo


Acrylic on Wooden Slav

This painting was inspired by stories from a local senior, Don, who spoke of his days in Fort Chipewayan as a child. Dog sledding was a normal activity for Don, which he learned from his family. Don loved the animals, and TJ wanted to capture the beauty of Northern Alberta with its colourful background and the luminescent white snow that covers it. The natural texture of the wood slab adds to the feeling and inspiration of this piece.
