Time to continue to the series about Alaska artist Gail Niebrugge’s living and painting in the wilderness of Wrangell-St. Elias, Alaska. Above is an original painting of the lower section of the longest valley glacier in North America, the Nabesna, and is particularly interesting to the artist because of the color she saw in the lower moraine and water. Niebrugge has often compared the patterns on glaciers to highways, the streaks of glacial moraine resembling long curving roads with many lanes. The vastness and beauty of this land is beyond description, sometimes while flying alone in her single engine Cessna she never saw another airplane or person anywhere.
