|Hudson Ice, Gouache, 5 x 8 inches, 1.5 hours|
Something below the surface groans and shudders. A huge slab rises from beneath and breaks the surface like the back of a whale.

Submerged ice is a deep green color that cameras can't capture. In my painting I place the horizon above the top of the page. I want to fill the entire field of view with this alien, abstract world of elemental forces. It's as strange and new to me as a view of another planet.
