Located about 12 miles north of downtown Juneau, in Southeast Alaska, is the iconic Mendenhall Glacier. This beautiful scene is the setting for the painting "Mendenhall Beauty" by Alaska artist, Karen Whitworth. In this vibrant artwork, Whitworth explores a play on words: Fire & Ice. The fire is represented by the beautiful meadow full of fireweed wildflowers that are so prevalent across the state of Alaska. The Ice portion of course, is more literal with the majestic glacier, a mass of ice, creeping towards the viewer like a frozen river through the Mendenhall Valley. With picturesque alpine ridges towering in the distance, and the Juneau Ice Field, a relic from the last ice age, just beyond view, this region is a gorgeous example of Alaska's natural beauty and rugged character.
