(This is a drawing from last summer that I've posted before but the image sucked - I had it captured last month.)

Archeology and the story of lost civilizations absolutely fascinates me. That was once the present age for those anchient people; that was their beautiful city, their community, and their echoes of laughter. They believed; as do we in this present day, that stability would carry along in prosperity for an eternity.
Than something happened.
Peak oil. Our current civilization is under the umbrella of prosperity as long as oil is available as a resource. It supplies energy to power cities and agriculture, products, and (aside from nuclear marine propulsion) powers all methods of transportation. However, oil is a non renewable resource. The minds of future generations have an inescapable obstacle when the resource runs out. Discover, invent, and use new forms of power or fade back to the days of steam and coal.
A thousand years from now if there isn't a solution all that will remain of our current age will be found underneath.
The second (taken by my friend Val) and third image with my drawings blurred in the background is at F.A.M. Shoutout to Angela that did the curation under a tight time slot. Remarkable. The art displayed provided a backdrop for a fashion event and a dance - all forms of wonderful! Please visit Angela's page @angelaportrait to show some love to her beautiful paintings. Follow the journey of an artistic heart that selflessly participates in giving back to the community through her ecletic humanitarian endeavors. Thx! (Oh. The pictograph that I mentioned is archived and I'll show after a few days go by.)
