This painting is inspired by a photo shared with me by expeditionary artist Maria Coryell Martin.
From Maria: 📷 This is the view from Camp 8, Mt. Moore on the Juneau Icefield in SE Alaska. It looks down towards the Taku glacier, which is recognized as the deepest alpine temperate glacier known in the world. I spent two summers in the region with the Juneau Icefield Research Program in 1999 and 2003 (http://juneauicefield.com), traversing and studying the glaciers. The program inspired my interdisciplinary approach to the environment as I fell in love the stark beauty of rock and ice, through the eyes of a mountaineer, scientist, and artist. It also inspired my passion for ice and climate change as I’ve focused on painting polar and glaciated regions around the world. In my daily life, I try to support the environment by walking and biking instead of driving. I work from home, and when I head out I try to appreciate elements of the landscape large and small. My family and I have an evening ritual to share three beautiful things we notice each day, which helps cultivate the habit of paying attention.
