Artist's Description

Our planet is slowly dying of disrespect.

Governments and industries are not doing enough to stop the global warming process. People have changed their daily habits, sometimes quite a bit, to help control pollution, but in many cases, it’s only as long as there is no extra cost or too much effort involved.

In the meantime the Earth is sick, bleeding to death.

Another composite created for a challenge. I’m really pleased with myself because I wanted a texture layer with splatters or drippings or leaking of some kind, and I was about to purchase a stock image, when I decided to try making my own.

I went through my things, and picked a tube of bright red poster paint, which I diluted with a bit of water to make it manageable, added corn syrup for texture and a splash of concentrated beef stock to darken the mix. I used a kitchen brush to make the splatters on an old board and made several shots.

When my son walked in, for a moment he thought that I had injured myself seriously or that I gone mad and butchered the dog! ;-)

My starting point, a photo of a sunflower that I converted to duotone for another challenge This is a photo of a grain dryer plant near my father-in-law's house, used to represent industrial pollution Archway door under an overpass, used to frame the flower, like a greenhouse Photo of fake blood splatters made today for the occasion.  Our planet is bleeding
