Artist's Description

This painting is the second of three that I have put together to illustrate the time line of the way we are headed with global warming and these extensive droughts that Australia is currently facing.

The first is titled “The Way We Were” which is what I image that it would’ve been like once upon a time, the aboriginals with the lushes amounts of water visable in the background, so laid back and not a care in the world.

The second (this one) is “The Drying Land”, representing more than just dirt sifting through an old man’s hands but also his life long dedication to his land that is slowly sifting further from mans control. More interpretation can be made from this image although I would much rather leave that to the viewers perspective than spell it all out.

Thirdly. “The Dried Land”, this is showing where we are headed, and to some extent were we already are… Many lakes and river are looking just like this, soon there will be no food or water left for our animals or us and we will shrival from our exsitance like the land in this illustration. More is being said, look at it to see your own stories etc.

Actual Size: 12" X 16"
