Global warming warning, Venice in peril
Each winter Venice floods with planks of wood laid out in St. Marks Square . The number of times this happens a year is increasing but we must be optimistic about the future. The idea for this painting stems from a trip to the city in November with people knee deep in water with umbrellas. The tyre symbolises our dependence on the car and the enviromental impact on our eco systems - after all there's only one earth. Please do not become anti car as a result of this painting - we still need to do the school run but boy racers take note.
