In most of my past paintings, they are what they appear to be, nothing deeper, however I have been becoming increasingly distressed at what is happening in this world we all share--we are loosing it, piece by piece. The ecosystems that keep us alive are slowly being destroyed. One of the most effective comparisons I have heard about what is happening is that our earth’s environment is like a plane flying through the air. You can start pulling rivets out of the fuselage as you fly and still remain airborne, however, eventually you will pull out a rivet and the plane will crash.
That is what I was trying to get at in this latest painting.
This painting is 24” by 18” and was done with acrylics on canvas. It took me 92 hours to complete.
