02 Jul, 2009 Sleep
Slept in a bit this morning, stuck my head outside and all was grey. Seems like afternoon light works better up here, so I’m adjusting my schedule accordingly. Late afternoon brought some breaks in the clouds and shone fantastic light onto the glacier. I set up my easel with a high vantage point overlooking this immense spectacle that is over three kilometers wide at it’s leading edge. A myriad of streams braid their way to Lake Hazen from the icy mass, they formed beautiful patterns as the sun reflected here and there. Battling the blowing sand on my palette, and in the painting itself, I managed to start what will certainly become a much, much larger painting back in my studio.
