‚ÄčExtinct & Almost Extinct  (2014-2015)

This project contains 36 paintings with accompanying notes on each species. It deals with species that are extinct, nearly extinct, and some that have been saved from extinction.  Like many of my projects in the past, this undertaking was a search for understanding. After hearing fragments of information in the media regarding the escalation of the extinction of species, I decided that I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of the crisis and share what I found in visual and written form. My hope is to draw attention to the beauty of a very small portion of what has been lost and of what we are losing. All paintings are 12" X 12", acrylic on paper. Book version of the project is available at Amazon.com.
