Environmental Escape. New Painting

Been aware of nature and how majestic it is in comparison to how fragile we are; us humans are to it. Nature, earth, and what it provides us with so much that we don't even see. We are so infatuated with ourselves and the meaningless things that spend time faster, rather then living life with nature. Our ways have built a irreversible negative effect on where we live that everything we need to sustain life, our lives is in danger. No more clean water, our crops are in low number an in bad health, millions of people dying of hunger, our earth had raised up by changing the climate and progressive reactions to earth quakes, tsunami, hurricanes, wild fires, ice caps melting in an alarming rate, and many other unbalances of our planet.

So I have been voicing how I feel via paintings.
I am developing art conversations over finding solutions to prevent furthering damage of our land, and I am doing it by painting them.

Above is a sample of a painting that is in progress. Hope you can relate or understand where I am heading with it.
