Antarctica: Still In My Mind's Eye

Resilient Retreat 1- mixed media

Resilient Retreat 2- mixed media

A few nights ago at a Main Line Art Center Professional Artists Members gathering, I was speaking to  fellow artist Deborah Leavy who is going to Antarctica soon. We were discussing her trip and mine. She asked me if it influenced my work and I said it had and still is. I just finished these 12 x 12" mixed media pieces for the Da Vinci Art Alliance ARTFUL GIVING Small Works Members' Show. They are based on my recollection of the icebergs in Antarctica- the brilliant, glowing turquoise blue, the shining white, and the orange to remind us of the melting that is occurring because of global warming.
