19″ × 45″, oil on linen (2010) Wilberforce Falls, Hood River, West of Bathurst Inlet, Nunavut, Canada
From the INTO THE ARCTIC Project
One of the highest waterfalls above the Arctic Circle, Wilberforce is a hidden gem that transforms the Hood River into a roaring display of sound and sight. My trip here immediately followed a month of exploring Ellesmere Island, where the sun never set. Now farther south, I battled the fleeting light and the hordes of mosquitoes that swarmed me and got stuck in my paints. But it was all worth it for the opportunity to witness such an awe-inspiring natural wonder.
