acrylic paint on canvas and marker; 10×8”
“My piece is about the impact humans can have on nature and points to the importance of keeping the environment clean and safe. We create new things that tend to put the expense of nature on the line for our comfort. This has created major environmental problems on the earth that a lot of people ignore. My painting depicts humans destroying nature for their own personal needs. While power is important for daily functioning, cutting down trees in favor of it can impact the surrounding environment in a negative way.”
