    >They paved Paradise and put up a parking lot. Or in this case, a factory. Beautiful blended colors, important message. ❤

    Love this- so beautiful and with such a powerful message.
    Happy PPF,

    It's a good use of the colors to send a message (love all the interpretations above) but I found myself more intrigued by the “jigsaw” puzzle aspect of the leaves in the background. Very interesting painting –
    This is my first PPF and it's been so fun to see what everyone else is up to!

    Quite a message and oh so true. Love the soft colors in the forefront. Thumbs up! Have a great weekend.

    I am just fascinated at how folks are seeing it backward.

    I saw it as the Earth reclaiming Industry – but it seems to be more of people seeing Industry encroaching on Earth.

    Art sure is curious – and glorious – that way, isn't it? I guess it all depends on where we are in our own journey as to how we see things.

    Thanks for all the feedback, y'all.

    Lovely. I can see it both ways. The sort of glow you've created in the green space does give the hopeful life-persevering feel. Love your lines.

    I was thinking of a park with the city in the background. 😉 And yes, if you leave her alone Mother Earth will heal all wounds…

    I really like the squiggly linework in this. Squiggly linework; that is a technical term, LOL. Looks great!

    You did a great jog getting darks using watercolors.

    this has the look of a garden of eden being over taken by industry – I think the opposite. It looks like the garden (or nature) is overtaking industry!

    A beautiful watercolour.

    I really enjoy looking at it.
