New Post

Well I have two new paintings from Surf City NC. One nice and one not so nice.

Here is the nice one.

Here is the not so nice one. We walked on the beach one morning and found lots of dead Sand Sharks on the beach from the gill net boats that were still off shore. Over 100 million sharks are killed annually. The shark existence of the east coast of the USA decreased in the last 15 years substantially. Millions of sharks die as non-usable catch (bycatch) in the nets and longlines of the swimming fish factories.

So along with the BP oil spill going in the Gulf on we have everyday enviromental disasters going on around us.

Thus the painting to point out that all is not good in the Ocean. There will be more since I also found more dead sharks and even pelicans.

Comments welcome.
