The recent water emergency in Boston has ended. After three days of boiling water to drink, due to a major water main break, the city of Boston & 30 outlying communities, can go back to normal water use. Hopefully in this short time of inconvenience, without clean water at the ready, we as a community have learned some important lessons. Our water supply is a precious resource, one which we take for granted on a daily basis. It is my hope that this crisis has awakened us to our responsibility to our planet & the water that gives it life. I have written about this here on this blog before, sharing that many of my paintings have a watery presence. The above painting entitled, "Falling", is one such example. Intuitively, I paint the movement & refraction of water. I can not help but think that there is a connection between what I paint & the passion I feel for this subject.
