After the battle between the USA and allies with IRAQ a great deal of oil was allowed to pour into the sea destroying shoreline and reef habitats. This incident inspired me to make this painting. Since then we have had many other spills of oil from the Exxon tanker and now the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico which is a nursery for many types of fish,tortoises and birds.

Nature has an incredible ability to restore itself yet if we destroy our planet with such negligence and do not put back what we take then we will all suffer living in a hostile world of our own creation.
