The ocean screams with rage. As saltwater mixes with oil, the earth cries out for redemption.
This fast and furious painting was the result of my emotional reaction to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that happened in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. I’m fed up with massive corporations that keep taking from our limited planet, destroying what little we have left and leaving behind messes that cannot be cleaned up no matter what they say. They have no regard for the well being of future generations. I submitted this picture to Time Magazine along with a letter which never got published. I intended this to be the first in a set of three paintings, which I hope to complete someday.
