    Alan Campbell – Mt. Erebus

    Could also be Colin Campbell, his son, but that does not look like Colin’s style so I am pretty sure you are right Atlas. And for bonus points, when was it painted?

    You got the subject on that one.
    Wrong gender for the artist.
    Title references the season it was painted.

    Another painting by the artist has the title “LSD Penguins”

    I’m gonna take a stab at it…only because I know that Karen has dabbled in the arts a bit….and it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect her to name a painting “LSD penguins”…AND this looks to me like her style….so is the artist Karen Joyce?

    It goes to M0loch.
    That is Erebus at Winfly by Karen Joyce.

    You are up….

    Well I do know she fits inside a suitcase. Even saw a video of that.

    And the plaque I was talking about was for Vince’s cross at Hut Point.

    Ah, but do you know HOW he drowned?

    I just know he was on the Discovery and slipped down a steep slope into the water and his body was never recovered.
    Is there a more detailed and colorful version?

    Sorry, got called out on OSAR :mrgreen:

    anyhow, googled Karen’s paintings – took me to Claire Benyon’s page – brought back a flood of memories..this is sort of fun.

    so…next question: in this photo, there is a mural painted on the bulk fuel tank. Name one of the artists who painted it.

    Mike Patterson, Scott Bowes, and Ray Spain in 1994.

    A guess, Mike Patterson. He has a number of other art works at Palmer from his days there.

    Whew! I thought I was good at Antarctic trivia but you folks are way too fast moving for me! Not knowing for sure but in my opinion I’d go with Mradyfist’s answer on the Palmer Station tank painting. m0loch, is it signed?
