Do you know the emergency routes?

Sketchbook

The people of the Greek Islands have the habit to swim daily in the beautiful sea and afterwards they  take a little rest on the beach and without their knowledge I could quietly make some sketches.

"WATER" the new GOLD ?


When I was still a little child my uncle always told us not to spoil too many water as in future water  would become more precious than oil...this in mind I made this new painting !
90 x 90 cm - acrylic on canvas

And now I realize more than ever that "Water" has become already one of the most precious natural resources of our planet  after seeïng the documentary "La Soif du monde"  - Yann Arthus-Bertrand telling that polluted water kills every day over more than 4000 children and eight hundred million people on earth have no potable water
