Find your inspiration 🌱 this 2nd hand book might be one of the most beautiful I own. Filled with inspiration and motivation, I just love to turn the pages when I’m in need of exactly that. The sequel is already on my Christmas wishlist. (About that: if you decide that you want to celebrate Christmas with presents, make a specific wishlist that you can give others. This not only makes life a whole lot easier for them, but it also ensures that you get something you value and you can actually use. Contrary to quite some Zero Wasters and minimalists here on instagram, I do believe in the art of giving presents. I understand the problem of consumerism all too well, but that’s why I called it the art of giving. Make sure you’re doing so sustainably and eco-friendly. I’ll be sharing a story about this soon, so stay updated 😉Also: one precious, thoughtful gift is better than 10 random sale scores. 🎁) Anyways, the movie that inspired this book changed my life. It got me excited about environmentalism and pushed me in the direction I am going today. This is why I was so excited when I heard that ‘An inconvenient sequel’ is coming out. November 23rd! Guess who’ll be first in line 🙋🍿

Deep Horizon I and Deep Horizon II, acrylic on canvas (20x20 cm)
Our reliance on fossil fuels has impacted on the greenhouse effect and climate change. The quest for fossil fuels in the form of global oil corporations and conglomerates has had some of the most disastrous manmade environmental impact - both at sea, on land and animal and marine life.
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill) began on April 20, 2010, in the Gulf of Mexico on the BP-operated Macondo Prospect. Killing eleven people, it is considered the largest marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. The US Government estimated the total discharge at 4.9 million barrels. After several failed efforts to contain the flow, the well was declared sealed on September 19, 2010. Reports in early 2012 indicated that the well site was still leaking. The spill was also notable for the volume of Corexit oil dispersant used and for application methods that were "purely experimental." Scientists concluded that mixing oil with dispersant increased toxicity to ecosystems by 52 times and made the gulf oil spill worse."
In September 2014, a U.S. District Court judge ruled that BP was primarily responsible for the oil spill because of its gross negligence and reckless conduct.
The Deepwater Horizon series of paintings refer to the grand tradition of marine painting - documenting great seafarers and nautical heroics.
