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.
