More Stuff! Green Living

What is the Story of Stuff?

Other Languages? Visit the International Site.From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.

Florida Landscape Painting - COWs

All this cleaning out has motivated my muse so I've stopped to paint a bit. This scene was inspired by SR 70 near Myakka Florida.
I want to paint the cows so bad...they look so serene lounging around under the humongus swooping oak branches. Well, these are faraway cows....I'm working on close up cows, it's a work in progress 4 a while now.
