Art Description

Painting: Oil, Fiber on Canvas.

Large swaths of West Antarctica are hemorrhaging ice these days. The warming has been the most dramatic on the Antarctic Peninsula.

Average annual temperatures have risen nearly 5 degrees Fahrenheit since 1950—several times faster than the rest of the planet—and the winters have warmed an astonishing 9 degrees. Sea ice now forms only four months a year instead of seven.

This should be alarming to everyone and I hope, in some small way, to bring more awareness to this issue by creating paintings about the effects of climate change.
