Along Glacier Bay

  • This particular painting is inspired by the amazing landscape and majestic scale of Alaskan glaciers. It's original inspiration is a picture I captured when my family and I travelled to Alaska and visited the Glacier Bay National Park. It was where I learned the word 'Calving'. Glaciers are large frozen rivers that are constantly moving, but extremely slowly. 'Calving' is when a section of the ice breaks off from the large mother structure at the mouth of the glacier. Due to global warming, the rate of calving has been increasing in many areas of the Pacific & Atlantic Ocean. Another interesting image was the bluish tinge on the surface of the ice wall, which is nothing but atmospheric gases trapped in the ice.
