I have always been fascinated with these monolithic wonders. From Bergy bits to Ice Domes they come in endless shapes and sizes not to mention that they are our barometers for global warming. A new study suggests that Large Icebergs that are now calving are moderating global warming.
This painting was done after passing the intersection on the journey to paint another subject and catching the view out of the corner of my eye. I had to backtrack to find the right angle and also had to wait until the old Streetcars came into view. On the journey somewhere else is the destination you were seeking.This is a slightly older painting but has not been shown before.
The Stockdale Mill is a wonderful spot any time of year to go painting. It was a wonderful restaurant and now is closed down and is becoming run down. It is a real shame but a magical place full of artistic opportunities.
