What kind of art have you made in honor of Earthday???
I was inspired by a quote from Byron Katie:
"The earth just gives, without condition, unnoticed and that's the proof of love. She doesn't ever withhold. She doesn't compromise. The way she speaks is through the wind and the rain, the sand, the rocks, the sounds of her creatures. She just sings her song without meaning, and she continues to give without any expectation of return. She'll support you all your life, and if you throw a tin can onto her or dump poison in her bloodstream or drop a bomb on her, there is total unconditional love. She keeps on giving."

I'd love to see what artist's are making using our Mother Earth as inspiration.
Oh, and Earthday just happens to be My Birthday, too!

Well, happy birthday! What a good idea to suggest recycling in art. I've been doing paintings on pieces of scrap foamcore, and on foam trays melted with spray fixative (the acetone makes pits and craters.)
