So I turned the Mendenhall glacier into a slightly warmer temp, after all it's summer...so that's why the ice is melting. Water color 15in x 11in

The melting glacier is wonderful and the yellow ocher does warm it up nicely, I also like how you did the mountain top with those feathery snow caps .
I love the Koi as well, there was so many of them. I think they were waiting to be fed.

Beautiful interpretation of temperature -- one of the most important topics for our future.

Richard,

The second one quite close to abstract painting, I like how you placed koi in interesting lines. The first one is lovely, with ochres showing up. The effect on the top of mountais is quite intriguing.:clap:

Really interesting and beautiful effects in the glacier, but I have a soft spot for koi, rich and colourful.
