This painting is a call for attitude change. As rivers run over their banks and the heaven’s roil with unseasonable storms individuals are finally beginning to Think globally and act locally in terms of reducing greenhouse gases. Big business clings to overbuilding and dirty fuels while individuals strive to reduce their footprint on the earth. In translating Mark Richards very painterly photograph of an "Old Bathtub on a Rooftop. I imagined global warming flooding our rooftops. Instead of finding a solution for the problem, opportunist build towns and resorts in giant bath tubs as a solution for flooding.

This is a mixed media acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, and collage painting done on one half sheet of arches 140# cold press paper.

The photographer whose painting called “Bathtub on a Rooftop” by Mark Richards (address below)which I translated for Sojie 12

When viewing a group of musicians or listening to music the musicians blend into their instruments for me and they sing as one.
In all of my work I have a fondness for bold color, clear values and wild texture.
My imagination works overtime. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.

    It is an amazing, thought provoking image. Still trying to find the time to fit in doing my cobble chair, but will one day!

  • Wait until winter when it is cold and ugly and then you will be cheered by doing the chair. Thanks for commenting, Sue. The idea is kind of a reach…but it is what came to me
