Title: Fall From Grace
24 in. x 18 in.
acrylic on canvas

This is a painting of  
Margerie  Glacier calving in
Glacier Bay National Park,
Alaska. You know, one of the
most interesting things  for
me is naming the painting
after it's finished.
Sometimes I have a name in
mind before I even begin, and
that was true for this
painting.   I thought about
what happens when a glacier
calves. It loses a piece of
itself, which falls into the
water, melts and further
diminishs the whole. The same
thing happens to us when we
trip up and lose a part of
ourselves. It's "A Fall from
Grace" and that's what I
named the painting.
