A series of paintings expressing concern with the steady destruction of our environment. The pollution of air, water and soil can lead to the destruction of ecosystems, habitats and the extinction of plants and wildlife. In the oil paintings, the plant is absent with only the memory of its color or habitat remaining. Each oil painting is detailed by drawing with sterling silver or “silverpoint”, which will continue to tarnish and age forever thus making the work “alive”. The exquisitely detailed watercolor paintings remind us of the beauty and importance of preserving our natural environment and native wildflowers.
