Icecanos at Schlitz Audubon

This is a new 16 x 20 studio painting completed from plein air work at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Fox Point.   These "icecanos" occur when high, cold waves crash on the shore and freeze quickly.  After a few days, formations occur that look like volcanos of ice.  If you're lucky and the wind is blowing, water will spurt up out of the holes too.  It's pretty exciting!
This painting and other icy subjects were on exhibit at the Pfister Hotel's Snow Show on Gallery Night.  Thanks Shelby and Richard for a great evening.

    I love the color in this one. And the subject is fascinating. I am really enjoying your blog this afternoon. I found it via the article about you in the Plein Air newsletter. Wonderful work!
    I am also intrigued by your easel set up--what is that folding extension in the front made from? Nicely done!
