Climate Change Series
I have been working on a series of paintings responding to climate change.
Like most people, I am very concerned about what is happening to our environment.
I became very dismayed when the California Fires became the top news story a couple of years ago. I was emotionally distressed after watching several U-tube videos of people’s homes being engulfed by the fires while they were trying to escape the disaster. When you know someone who has to live through this horror, you get how bad climate change is.
Likewise, the Houston floods a few years back brought the disaster home to me, as I have family in the area.
I experienced firsthand the retreating glaciers when I visited British Columbia and viewing the retreating ice melt.
It is my hope that these paintings will communicate the terrifying reality of where our planet is headed to now and in the future.
