Original oil painting by Alison C. Dibble, 24 x 24 x 1.4 inches.


Near the end of an iceberg’s existence, some strange comb-like configurations may remain as the berg floats along on the ocean current.

Remnant is an original fine art oil painting by Alison C. Dibble, oil on panel, 24 x 24 x 1.4 inches. The design seemed to emerge from the panel itself, and is part of the series Greenland Ice Sheet Imagined. See also Warm Summer Evening.

The uneven melting of the ancient ice layers that were deep inside a glacier are now exposed to the air for the first time in many millennia. As the remnant melts, it tilts and then tips over, and now a new aspect is exposed above the ocean’s surface.

The painting is unframed with white-painted gesso edges 1.4 inches deep, and is ready to hang. The price includes shipping within the continental U.S.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this painting goes to charity.
