Last week I posted color chips that I’m exploring for my new Antarctic series of watercolors. Today I’d like to share an actual painting! I’m loving large washes of subtle color, and exploring the specificity of icebergs in the vast environment of the Southern Ocean. There’s something about big, quiet spaces- deserts, really- that I love. The open skies and simple elements provide me with space to think, reflect, and to notice the world around me.

My goals is to complete 10 or so paintings and display a series at Polar Science Weekend in Seattle next month. I’d love to see you there!
