Mount Rainier 1890
Since 1890 the Nisqually Glacier on Mount Rainier has receded over a mile up the valley. The changes that we can observe in glaciers are barometers of the pace of climate change in our region. This painting is the first portrait in a new series of paintings that I hope increase awareness of how rapidly our beloved landscapes are changing and inspire you to look a little differently at a glacier if you see one.
This painting is based on an image from 1890, and its counterpart is based on photos taken in 2018.
