Title: Bryn Mawr Glacier
12 in. x 12 in.
acrylic on canvas
This is a portrait of
Bryn Mawr
, one of the many glaciers in
College Fiord. College Fiord is
located in Prince William Sound in
Alaska. It's glaciers  were named by
members of the Harriman Expedition
in 1899 for famous East Coast
Women"s and Men's colleges.
Can you see how this glacier seems
to divide, then flow
downwards?Those dark lines near
the middle, called medial moraines,
look almost like traffic lanes to me.
College Fiord, and all the glaciers you
see there, is an otherworldly place.
Misty, cold, and washed in blue-gray
icy colors. A good place for
introspection and silence.
