Destruction of the Maple


Destruction of the Maple



Mixed media on Watercolor paper
I love working with recycled material be it teabags, parts from electric component or recycled           paint. I gives me satisfaction that I'm repurposing something instead of  putting it into the land fill sites





                                                                   



This painting has pieces of metal that I found on the beach. The decayed maple depicts just a small part of the destruction that we have created with our waste and pollution in the environment.

In this painting half the leaf is affected by pollution and the other half is a natural death

Last summer was my summer of contentment.
I spent most of the summer at the cottage with my family.
I had endless lazy days of walking the beach, playing in the water with the kids.
It gave me time to reflex and I found I had so much to be thankful for.
After spending countless hours on the beach I started to collect beach glass, interesting pieces of rusty metal, plastic, cans,driftwood, and pottery.

Finally fall came, the urge to paint the leaves was strong. This time I wanted to incorporate some of the waste that I found in the lake. Pollution is destroying our environment and we need to be careful.
of how it affects are trees, water and environment.
The pieces of rusty metal were perfect! It mimics the look of acid rain and fungus.
