Mixed Media/Found Objects on Gallery Wrap Canvas
This painting depicts tree roots searching for water that is just out of reach. California is experiencing one of the worst droughts in recorded history. Record low rain and snow have left reservoirs at less than half capacity and water supplies rationed, especially in agricultural regions. The result is that well drilling has doubled and even tripled in some counties, leading to over-consumption of groundwater supplies. Unlike above-ground water sources, ground water sources can become so depleted that they may never refill, which could endanger the reserves that protect the ecosystem, agriculture, and the populace.
