The moon shines on a wall of ancient blue ice, floating chunks, and icebergs in Greenland in this imagined scene.
Autumn comes, the days get shorter, the rate of melting slows. And the moon is lower in the sky. But the melting from the summer has led to more icebergs, more ice chunks in the water. Greenland Ice Sheet III, moon and blue ice tells a story of remoteness, wilderness, and a forbidding seascape. This is one of a series, see also Greenland Ice Sheet I, collapsing wall; Greenland Ice Sheet II, glacier valley; and Greenland Ice Sheet IV.
Screens differ in the display of colors. I photographed the painting in daylight in an effort to represent the colors as truly as possible.
