Arctic Scene Work-in-Progress...

This is a piece I've been working on for the past few days based on the lost Franklin Expedition of the 1840s. The ship in the foreground is the Terror (like the book by Dan Simmons which inspired the piece) and the one in the BG is the Erebus.

I'm a nut for these types of stories. Ernest Shackleton and his Endurance, the Whaleship Essex on which Melville based Moby Dick... these are all just fascinating tales of Man vs. Nature, and I eat them up like candy.

This piece has a ways to go, but I haven't posted in a bit, so I thought I'd put it up now and post the final version when it's done.

Hope all are well!
