In Norse mythology Loki is the shape shifter and trickster. He is also Odin's brother and gets into lots of mischieve but also solves a lot of problems. When we sail close to the cliffs of Valdez Island in the Gulf Islands I see the face of many characters looking out at me. In this painting you will see those faces...look carefully...Loki is there in many guises. The sailboats sail past not realizing they are under watch. I imagine that Loki is in there guiding us on our journey and watching for danger. Or he might even conjure up some for his own amusement. Either way life is full of adventure.
