The Art of Stev H. Ominski
The Collected Ice Age Floods Art of Stev H. Ominski is a suite of paintings and drawings depicting the events at the end of the last ice age when Glacial Lake Missoula broke its ice dam and raced west to the Pacific Ocean. Evidence in the wake of these Ice Age Floods are Washington’s scoured channeled scablands, rich soil deposits in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and countless erratic rocks, which were rafted on icebergs, throughout the region. These works, utilizing the research and opinion from the geologic community, are the result of the illustrator’s efforts to take the viewer back in time to the Missoula Ice Age Floods; a story that is still unfolding. As new scientific evidence is uncovered the overall “picture” of the floods changes. This new evidence is then taken into consideration by the illustrator when creating further additions to this collection.
Stev H. Ominski was born in 1952 in Portland Oregon. He now resides with his wife, Librarian Mary Finnegan and their aging cat, Sepia, southeast of Corvallis, Oregon.
