Everyday life can go on and unless we are constantly reminded of the negative aspects going on we may not even realize it. This painting is about the everyday life that goes on around us (the upper portion) and how down below I am consciously thinking about the environment. The thoughts are about changing my habits to be better or being aware of the daily things I do, good and bad, that affect the world around me.
I definitely am not the only one conscious of these things but the idea of thinking about it everyday and what I can do to make a difference can be quite a burden even though I am not alone.
Underneath the metaphorical and literal surface there are always occurrences that relate to us. Often times, because we do not see where our trash goes or the pollution we produce we can forget about it.
