Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

We all have that special "house and garden" in our heart, this is what I fancy, being lost in flowers and shrubs, under a tiled roof

I have chosen to depict a palm tree as a symbol of "running out of natural resources". In the world there is a proliferation of the use of palm oil, and for that vast amounts of land have been cut down and palm trees planted destroying orangutan habitats, water sources, Amazon forest has been cut by the farmers for profits from palm oil. Large countries like China and India depend on oceans of palm oil to cook as oil cooking is their main and most of the time only cooking method. This drives further devastation and climate change as the lungs of the planet of all kinds of trees are cut to give way for this water hungry palm. Although I didn't depict the oil palm, all palm trees according to scientists have soil underneath them which is very poor in nutrients due to lack of rotting foliage. No birds nest on palm trees except crows and rats. Palms are a problem for the migrant birds as they cannot really rest in them or nest in them on the way. Proliferation of palm trees leads to decreased soil fertility and decline in bird varieties and populations. They do look fabulous though and we all love palm trees views. What a an illusion of everything being beautiful and well. We live in a fantasy. My painting reflects that fantasy and that all that is left is some shrubs and palm trees in the world.
