This watercolor of a magnificent Blue Heron from my Everglades series has finally emerged!
I worked on it for several days --- in between projects and deadlines.
I am anxious to get to my work on the Everglades-- but before I do-- I am traveling down to the Gulf Coast tomorrow.
I want to see for myself- and document the tragedy.
I grew up mostly in Florida...but I spent 5 years of my childhood in Biloxi, MS -- while my Dad was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base. Biloxi is a simple town-- mostly shrimping. It's beautiful pristine beaches are in the line of fire for oil spillage.
I am attached to the Gulf-- and am as concerned as everyone else about it's safety.
I believe the whole ecosystem and biodiversity is in peril!
If I can make any 'gorgeous tragedy' statements to inform, enlighten, or mobilize -- I will feel like I've made a contribution.
