Painting > Arctic and Antarctic

Ice in its great abundance, the North and South poles are an endless landscape of whiteness. These images comes from journals and stories written by and about these explorers.This race to reach the Poles first, by balloon, ship, sled, or otherwise, intrigued me and inspired me to create a precarious place for these ideas to collide.
