This Earth

Mixed Media on canvas.
This is a very big canvas hanging on a wall in my living room now. I love the presentation of this one as the colour choices are minimal and there's texture to it. This painting is an abstraction of our dying earth. The torn ozone, the polluted air and the natural disasters. The earth, in short is wounded. Badly. I'm not sure why I am drawn to paint morbid, unhappy or bleak scenarios. It just happened. Maybe I need to have a more cheerful approach to painting but then again, I paint what I feel. I need to be happy to paint happy pictures, right? I'm not saying I'm unhappy right now. I think I'm just lethargic. I need a long vacation!!!
