Originally shown and sold during STUDIO Gallery’s “Tiny” Exhibit in December of 2018. Acrylic on cradled birch panel, 6 in x 6 in.
Originally inspired by a mural I had commissioned by Salesforce in partnership with the PangeaSeed Foundation for the Global Climate Action Summit in Fall of 2018 atop the SF Transit Center. The mural was about the rising ocean temperatures, acidification of the ocean waters, rising sea levels and how that is impacting marine and land animals in the Bay Area specifically. As many Northern Californians know, the dungeness crab fishing season has been halted occasionally due to these effects from climate change. The increased temperatures have led to exceedingly prolific algae blooms that then lead to domoic acid in the crabs which makes them unsafe for human consumption. In Spring of 2019, the Pacific Coast Federation of Fisherman Association is suing 30 major fossil fuel companies for how their actions are directly effecting their industry. I have been part of many a celebratory family and friend feast since living in San Francisco where dungeness crab was the highlight of the night. I hope that there will still be many more in the future.
The painting was professionally photographed by Almac Camera in order to capture the color accuracy and clarity of the brushwork in amazing detail.
