ABOUT THE ARTWORK
“Burnt Earth” was painted not long after I saw a documentary on what the earth would look like it in a thousand years if, as a species, we didn’t do something to reverse global warming. What would result would be a vast burning wasteland with reminiscences of our oceans and lakes.
This is my rendition of the upper part of lake Superior, one of the five great north American lakes, in a thousand years.
