Do you think the planet will be a better place with less humans on it?

The problems of climate change, disruption to essential ecosystems, species extinction, and conflicts between states and tribes threaten the quality of life for even the richest nations and put into question our long term survival. All of this compounded by growing numbers of people on earth. I think there is no question that for future generations, life on earth and what we know as “nature” will be very different from what it is today. We have to question how much we value the earth’s beauty and diversity, its natural systems, and what kind of world we want for the future.

Il explique, dans un article sur My Modern Met, que chacune de ces peintures à l’huile réalistes lui prend au moins 3 mois à réaliser.
