After Alaska was inspired by the high contrast of the broken ice floating in the glacier-bound waters and the densely-wooded cliffs reflected in the water. The ice seems luminous and unearthly. Weiss chose this transparent watercolor (all the whites are the whites of the paper) to represent her work in 2008 at the Saitama Museum of Art in Saitama, Japan. It was also in her solo show at the Charles Allis Art Museum, Milwaukee. The earthy colors are enhanced by being mounted on rich natural linen. Framed in gray-washed ash, image size 40" x 26", it is 47" x 33" overall.
