Portrait of
Margerie Glacier

Margerie Glacier is located in Glacier
Bay National Park in Alaska. On this
particular day, the sky was overcast,
dreary and a slight mist was coming
down. I was standing on the bow of
the ship when I took the photo for this
painting, feeling the icy wind and
looking at the river of ice that
stretched back into the mountains
behind the glacier. Very, very old ice,
frozen for a very long time...and so
the title this painting really came from
that moment on board the ship.
Ancient Ice.
