Footsteps in life
Little did know when worked on this piece that we would find ourselves facing the devastation of the Gulf. With each hour that passes, more oil is pouring into the waters. There have been overhead filming of dolphins, whales, sea life struggling (loosing) their lives. The coastline marshes will disappear. And told earliest possible August in stopping the spill. Helpless and well aware of the life long mark this will leave on Mother Earth in our own back yard. We are one of the riches societies on the face of the Earth; why then?
Maybe not a piece that want to point with pride now. Remember had a discussion also with another artists of how "pretty" oil mixed with water was and how to capture that on canvas. My mind reels in wanting to "take back" those words.
