          Cementon       Beeswax and natural pigment on paper        22" x 47"      1989

This is a painting I did on the east bank of the Hudson River across from the Cementon cement plant that became one controversy of pollution of the river. Fortunately activists did a tremendous campaign showing the populace of a large area, into Massachsussetts, how the plant's toxic waste not only effected the river's health but the lands east that collected toxins falling from the atmosphere. The image of the face and the dead fish washed up on the shore appeared to me after I had finished the piece.
