Talya, after trying to encompass the sheer magnitude of an Alaskan glacier (only the Hubbard thus far--it was as far north as our cruise ventured), I salute your skill at conveying this one's bulk & thickness, especially at its very edge: a veritable 'river of ice'! Thanks for adding my "Sketch Club" to Painterly Fine Art.

Talya Johnson replied:

Ah yes...glaciers are so difficult to paint! I'm delighted by your comment. Thank you so much. :)

Love the texture and somewhat abstract quality.

Salem, VA - United States

You've captured an awesome sense of the majesty of this place, Talya. It takes masterful composition, color and brushstrokes to achieve that, especially plein air and working small. Wonderful work of art!

What a flattering compliment!! Thank you, Bonnie!

You have packed so much power into such a tiny painting Talya. I feel as though I am standing on that mountainside looking at the glacier, it's cold and awe-inspiring...all on a 6x8 canvas!

Thank you, Susan. I really enjoy the challenge of a small canvas. :)

You are hitting them out the park, Tayla! You put so much depth in a loose style of painting and succeed in making me feel as if I'm right there looking across breathtaking vistas.
