Mixed Media Painting - Secrets of the Ocean

mixed media painting - "Secrets of the Ocean" (50cm x 35cm)

You can find a lot of inspiring and interesting things when walking along our beaches. Not only driftwood, string and beautiful rocks, but also plastic bottles, cans, plastic containers, plastic toys, brick walls and single shoes. Lots of single shoes.
It makes me think about the ground of our oceans. It must look like a giant tip landscape. I've seen these photos of dead seabirds opened up and showing the content of their inside: plastic caps, strings, cables... We are the masters of creation? And where has our responsability gone?

Wonderful piece! Realy like the collaged elements and your commentary on what we as humans do to the ocean.

Your collage certainly makes a strong statement about how terrible we are treating our beautiful oceans and ocean creatures..
