Painting #12: Moonlight

Artists for A Pristine PlanetPainting #12: TITLE: Moonlight.

One night recently the moon was full as a pumpkin, and I went down to the bench overlooking the canal near my house to just sit and look.

There’s a family of ducks who live nearby, and as I came closer, they up and swam off. This is the effect of their sassy departure. I sure like how it came out (look closely at the left side, as the dark blues are very dark and hard to see unless you look at the enlarged image).

To get this original painting for only $100, email me at this address: Lyon(at)AngelaTreatLyon.com with APP Moonlight in the subject line.

Our First Artist for A Pristine Planet Donation!

We made our first donation today: to Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff organization! I just love her work, who she is, what she does, and the passion she shows in getting the word out about what really goes on about things.

Her story on tap water was riveting/horrifying. See it here: http://storyofbottledwater.orgCross your fingers that I’ll be able to get her to interview for the Daring Dreamers Showcase! I’ll let you know –

This is from her website: Annie Leonard is the author and host of The Story of Stuff. She is author of The Story of Stuff, the book, published by Free Press of Simon and Schuster on March 9, 2010.

Annie has spent nearly two decades investigating and organizing on environmental health and justice issues. She has traveled to 40 countries, visiting literally hundreds of factories where our stuff is made and dumps where our stuff is dumped.

Witnessing first hand the horrendous impacts of both over- and under- consumption around the world, Annie is fiercely dedicated to reclaiming and transforming our industrial and economic systems so they serve, rather than undermine, ecological sustainability and social equity.
