Reasons To Be Happy:
- Dead trees still stand and so can you.
- You have five fingers on each hand. One day those fingers will travel from your lap to someone else’s and that person will know all the bad stuff and still want to kiss you.
- Seasons are guaranteed when nothing else seems to be.
I dedicate this picture of the tragedy in Taiji, Japan.
My heart is very sore, every time I hear about new deaths of dolphins and whales in Taiji. I painted “Angel in the Cove” through grief, suffering and hope.
Every year in this bloody cove thousands of dolphins die in horrible agony. Fishermen kill entire pods and destroy families.
Groans of the dying dolphins and red water from the blood … This is hell on Earth.
In this work I want to ask just one question: when these people stained the water with innocent blood, when they hear their moans, watch their agony … do they think about what ocean they will leave to their future children?
This angel symbolizes the unborn soul.
