It seems odd that we would just let the world burn.

We are living in a world which is burning, where entire cities are wiped off the map, where we acknowledge that due to man-made emissions, whole communities will be flooded on a regular basis. Millions of people will die from excessive heat. And yet, we aren’t rushing out to the streets like last summer’s BLM rallies. There are no marches demanding change. Nobody’s smashing SUV’s or blowing up pipelines. We’re all going about our regular lives, just hoping for change.

It’s because it doesn’t affect older people.

Part of the problem is that America is essentially a gerontocracy. Everyone who runs this country is old, and because young people don’t vote enough, policies don’t focus on their future. I made this painting because my generation is getting the benefit of all this carbon burning, but time is running out. We can dance in the streets now, but the water’s rising, so don’t expect our kids to be able to do the same.

Listen to the news like our hair’s on fire.

If you think about what’s happening as an actual emergency, what we’re doing is insane. We’re still building oil and gas pipelines, cruise ships can’t even bother to plug in when they dock in NYC, there’s no super tax on SUVs, we actually subsidize oil companies, China is still installing coal-fired power plants.

We’re dancing in the flooding streets, trying to eke out the last bit of fun. But think about it. This is an emergency.

We will soon all be underwater.

The prints are truly beautiful.

I print these using a top of the line Epson Giclée printer on Hahnhemühle thick German Etching paper. The colors are accurate, the paper has this pretty texture to it. I've had artists come by who can't tell the difference between the originals and the prints.

I offer three sizes, the largest is at the scale I painted it, so more official so to speak, but the smaller ones are nice too. Each one is signed and numbered.

Wild Birds - Anant Pradhan - Larry McDonald

Beautiful expressive print that captures a crucial historical moment perfectly!

If this moment in time had you worried about our democratic process and our continued fight for civil rights you will love this print!

The Big Rain Roses have not yet been hung -- they are leaning against a wall, waiting until my son moves out and I take over his room for office and crafting space. But the first day I saw these in morning light, I immediately smiled and thought to myself, "Confectionery!" The colors are both full and soft, the water-streaked effect is evocative, and the blue is particularly compelling (as seems to be the case in the Palm Court painting as well). My mother was a great lover of roses, but they are tricky to grow through Florida summers. These two prints give me both the memory of roses and the memory of my mom.

Palm Court, the painting takes me back to Palm Court, the place and my mind floods with all of the great memories of it.
