Ephemeral Beauty

20″ × 60″, oil on linen (2020) Tanquary Fiord, Quttinirpaaq National Park, Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada

From the INTO THE ARCTIC Project

Gracing the land briefly each summer, the flora carpeting each side of the creek was a sight to behold. In this harsh land so far north, it is always a wonder to witness such delicate beauty surviving against all odds, including a short growing season that plunges into winter darkness and cold for months each year. I also loved the contrast against the raw mountains in the background, and the rare opportunity to use such vivid magenta hues in an Arctic painting.
