Let it Be - I am a Beatles fan!
36 x 21"
This piece was inspired by the drought in California as well as other parts of the world. We are depleting our water resources to the point where we are drawing irrigation waters for lawns, pools, and agriculture from aquifers where it cannot be replenished. The pump in this piece is reaching to the aquifer. The tree’s roots are reaching and reaching way deep to survive. The river bed is nearly all dried up.

As I poured water into the reservoir of my self-watering flower pot . . . out popped this toad. He made it clear that this was his home (but he didn't mind my flooding it). He remained for the summer. He had the mien of a Prince. Would I take the chance to kiss him? Better to take his picture, translate his image to fabric, and commemorate my summer with My Prince.
