A lynx looks out of the mural that artist Suzie Shrivener finished painting on Saturday over a store-front window at the Peninsula Center Mall, photographed on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017 in Soldotna, Alaska. Shrivener, who began painting about two years ago after an injury, did the latex paint and airbrushed mural — her first — after setting up a display of her work in the mall’s nearby showcase. She offered the mural to the mall for free to get experience in window painting. “Painting’s relatively new to me, so to work on something that big, I didn’t know how it would turn out,” Shrivener said. “I didn’t know what would happen, but I thought it was a good opportunity.” (Photo by Ben Boettger/Peninsula Clarion)
