Look with Compassion on what Once was Wild
archival print from original painting
Adapted from the "Eco-Animal Awareness" series of 13 original abstract/realism color field paintings with collage and wordage. The works carry a "saying" to make the viewer aware of real happenings in the world concerning wildlife and ecology. The colorful depictions and statements are a learning tool for all ages.
Wildlife faces their 6th great extinction, this one man-made, thru human overpopulation, habitat loss, pollution and poaching for so called cures. Every creature is important for the eco-system balance. Cloning does not produce creatures with the same make up they acquire by doing their thing to survive in the wild nor would it keep plants necessary for clean waters.. How extraordinarily selfish to eliminate species for profit or by neglect of their needs.
"Look with Compassion on what Once was Wild" - How many animals are confined to zoos, mistreated in circuses, have severly reduced habit?
