Ship icebound by cheery-macaroon Ship icebound by cheery-macaroon
Created after reading an extract from Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein'......

"...the mist cleared away, and we beheld, stretched out in every direction, vast and irregular plains of ice, which seemed to have no end."

Comments and thoughts are always welcomed! :)

Nicely done.  People who make the novella over again and again as the basis of a movie tend to forget Sir Robert Walton and his icebound ship and angry crew at the start and end of the novel.  His seeking the North Pole or the Northwest Passage happens to parallel Victor Frankenstein's desire to create a living being without God or nature.  In the end Walton appears to be the luckier of the two.

This is lovely! So serene and peaceful yet disquieting, also. It reminds me of the story of the Endurance [link] I hope that the sailors of your ship had a happy ending, also!

I featured your work in a journal about Mary Shelley and Frida Kahlo. [link] Hope you don't mind... I found your work inspirational and hope that it will open that doors to people who might not know Mary Shelley
