18"x24" Acrylic Collage on Birch Panel
This fall I spend time out on the busy Plain of Six Glaciers trail behind Lake Louise to track painter Lawren Harris and sketch Mt Lefroy – one of his iconic subjects. The Death Trap, which is the glacier reaching up to Abbot Pass to the right of Mt. Lefroy, truly lives up to its name. The day was constantly being shattered with ice and rock crashing from above. The Victoria Glacier painting gives a sense of these monstrous pinnacles of rock pelting boulders, ice and debris down onto the glacier.
