Painting 15 is titled Reclaiming, 8×8 inch on masonite. Part of the “The Retaliation of Mother Nature” series.
This may be the last painting in my environmental painting series titled “Reclaiming”. It is a painting of a broken roadway that once crossed a creek that is now overgrown with weeds and natural grasses. Mother Nature has a way of taking back what was once hers very quickly, which is what inspired the title.
Below is the explanation of the series:
A piece from the series “The Retaliation of Mother Nature” where humankind no longer able to coexist in harmony becomes extinct after polluting the planet and allowing chemicals to pour into the rivers and oceans killing off all the sustainable natural resources. Able to revive herself after a short period of time without human contamination, vegetation begins to flourish while the remnants of people and their structures begin to fall into ruin.
I have a total of five paintings so far in the series, this being the last. Here are links to the other paintings in the series:
- Return to Avalon
- Reconcile – this post has the story behind why I am drawn to paint this series
- Dwell no more
