Nature Art Contest Contest Entry 
Alaska is home to a vast untouched wilderness where there are a number of sights of outstanding natural beauty. This painting depicts a natural glacier and a regular cruise ship,The Sun Princess that I wanted to be part of the composition to show the sheer size of the glaciers in comparison. Alaska wilderness is unique and there is a lot of it. About 95% of National Park Service land in Alaska has some wilderness protection, and accounts for about 30% of the nation?s wilderness. Including areas managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service, Alaska has more than 57 million acres of designated wilderness: watersheds, mountain ranges, glaciers, wetlands, coastlines, volcanoes, tundra, forests, and wild and scenic rivers. These wilderness areas support diverse wildlife populations, protect archaeological resources, provide a setting for wilderness recreation, and support the continuation of a subsistence lifestyle for local communities.
