2009-2011. Pastel on paper, watercolor on paper

Drawing and paintings of landscapes done plein air, except for the Creation and Destruction series, This Land is Your Land.

This Land is Your Land is a visual allegory of nature’s sustainability, depicting consumption of the world and its resources. The egg of life is cracked open as nature flourishes in the early morning. Man slowly devours nature, like a meal, until there is nothing left but fire and destruction by dusk. The leftovers of mankind are washed away as nature reclaims the land restarting the cycle over again
