"Coronado Red" in honor of the Paris Climate Accord

This is my painting that is currently circling cyberspace in an international art show honoring the Paris Climate Change Accord. A few days after November starts the Accord will be implemented and official and the show will be over. This show has been online for almost a year. It is one of my favorite exhibitions I have ever been privileged to participate in and share with artists around the world.

Coronado Red is an acrylic painting depicting the psychic scream I heard when the Humboldt squid, a red squid attacked the ocean bathers and swimmers at Coronado Beach in San Diego. The squid's home is really far south of our country but due to warming ocean water that has dwindled the food supply, the Humboldt squid, an enormous and dangerous animal has migrated north in search of food. We also have the wonderful Blue Whale now for the same reason, climate change, feeding off our coast. The Humboldt squid has migrated far north now and has been sighted off the California/Oregon coast clear to Alaska. The squid is capable of pulling an adult human under the water and killing it for food.
