Log Cabin and the Northern Lights Yukon River 24×30 inch acrylic on canvas My current favourite writer is Jack London, Call of Wild, his short stories and Biography are brilliant prose. He would have gotten the nobel prize but he died before it came into existance. This is his cabin in Dawson where he wrote his 1500 words everyday. At the peak of his fame he made $75,000 a year unfortunately his expenses were $100,000 a lot of people took him to the cleaners!! He said being in constant debt motivated him to keep frantically writing his stories. he only managed 5 hours sleep at night, became progressively more depressed and drank himself to death at 40.
