24 x 18 inches :: original acrylic painting on stretched canvas
The topic of water is close to my heart. It is such a basic necessity for survival that many third world countries don't have. The water crisis in Flint, Michigan has been heartbreaking and maddening to learn about. The consequences that are in store for the state I live in (California) with its severe drought also frightens me but like most people, the fright can be kept tidily arms-length away as we go about our days sort of in denial about it all. Anyway, I used a photo from the Internet that I found as reference for this work, to pause and consider what our drought looks like.
