This is perhaps the most graphic piece I have ever done, in that it presents as a poster might, its message loud and clear:
"WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE! THE GLACIERS ARE MELTING, THE LAND MASSES ARE SHRINKING, PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR HOMELANDS, AND WILDLIFE THEIR HABITATS!"
I'm not the only eco artist using this means of communication. Josh Keyes is perhaps the most famous of those who are currently producing similar stuff. I highly recommend you check out his website.
A painting like Boiling Point is meant to grab your attention, sort of shock you into recognizing the message despite the deceptively "pretty" packaging. It's a large piece--24x30, and therefore even harder to ignore. In fact, Renee Phillips of Manhattan Arts International asked for a high resolution image of it to include in an upcoming article she wrote for Professional Artist online magazine. They may or may not use it, but it got her attention. I can't ask for more than that.
