This is my newest painting just finished.  It is titled American Tsunami, referring to the Wall Street and banking crisis, which flooded over us all and led us into the housing crisis.  This man made “storm” destroyed the homes and lives of many, and it’s effects are still being felt.  My heart goes out to those affected by this tsunami that need not have occurred, as well as to those who have suffered the actual tsunamis that nature has thrown at them, destroying so much and taking so many lives.  There was no preventing what nature created, but our American version was preventable, adding to the sadness and disgrace of it.   It was the recent Japanese tsunami that has stuck in my mind and prompted doing this work in this way, and I created this painting with both tsunami in mind.
