Original paintings and drawings by Dave Pickard
As far as the environment is concerned I’m pessimistic about the future. Recent events have reinforced this.
All my paintings focus on an endangered species, ranging from exotic jungle animals to ones nearer home.
Since finishing the pictures the media has concentrated on the burning of the world’s rainforests. Ice caps and glaciers are melting at an unprecedented rate. The Times had an article on the decline of the lapwing (I finished mine months before). And today scientists have announced that there are three billion less birds in the USA than there were three decades ago.
Where is the balance?
