Permafrost - Landscape Mountain Art
Acrylic on canvas 30"x40"x.75"
Artist Statement: "This smoky mountain ice scape is great for any home that needs a pop of color in a neutral room. Blue is the everlasting trend so this timeless piece will create a calming but erupting energy in your space. The cool tones relax the viewer as the icy water flows over the rocks dragging you into wondering what is in the beyond. I get inspired by the cold weather and even though the trees may be bare, nature still creates such beautiful artwork all around us constantly."
Information About The Melting Ice:
"Earth’s permafrost is turning out to be not so permanent in many parts of the world. As global temperatures rise, the once always-frozen ground that covers a good chunk of the world’s northern latitudes is thawing. That might not sound like such a big deal, but as our underground ice turns to squelchy muck, it’s exposing long-hidden threats to our climate, ecosystems, and health.
Permafrost is any type of ground—from soil to sediment to rock—that has been frozen continuously for a minimum of two years and as many as hundreds of thousands of years. It can extend down beneath the earth’s surface from a few feet to more than a mile—covering entire regions, such as the Arctic tundra, or a single, isolated spot, such as a mountaintop of alpine permafrost."
"Even if we significantly curb emissions in the coming decades, more than a third of the world’s remaining glaciers will melt before the year 2100. When it comes to sea ice, 95% of the oldest and thickest ice in the Arctic is already gone.
Scientists project that if emissions continue to rise unchecked, the Arctic could be ice free in the summer as soon as the year 2040 as ocean and air temperatures continue to rise rapidly."
