Manhattan Beach, California USA

The Environmental Puzzle

Oil Painting

Artist Statement
Science is only catching up with a concept that artists and poets have always understood: Our universe is interconnected on a sublime level. But even on an obvious visual level, our environment is impacted by different types of pollution daily. I walked on the beach this morning and had my feet covered with tar from an oil spill that occurred last week in Santa Barbara. I saw sea lions beached and suffering. The oil painting of the beach with the missing piece of sky is meant to suggest both the seen and unseen damage inflicted upon the world we live in.
My love affair with California began when My husband Jim, and our three young daughters, moved to Malibu in1996. I compulsively painted the landscape and the beaches in Malibu, trying to capture the sense of time and timelessness that I experienced in California. I continue to be fascinated by color and interplay of light on iconic objects.
