At the edge of the sea ice
Oil on canvas Framed - 78 x 73cm

I read somewhere that “in most of Antarctica life clings to the edge”. This is because of the Antarctic Convergence when the cold Antarctic waters meet the warmer sub-Antarctic ones releasing nutrients, causing phytoplankton which attracts small crustaceans and krill. Then fish, mammals and birds come to feed off the shellfish and the edge of the sea ice becomes an area of teeming activity.
