  2. Hi, my name is Daniel Sofer I’m from Israel and I’m a student at Martin Methodist.we have a show in our school about global rivers, and i think its a very important subject. i think that the show in school about the subject helps to increase people awareness of pollution rivers.
    i really love all the painting in the show and all of them represent something important, but i never sew this painting before and i thing its amazing! the massage of the pollution rivers is really clear and the beaver swimming inside the river full of oil is just sad to see. The painting is divided to two by the pipe of the oil,that also becomes the frame of the painting. its like the pipe is taking over the river.
    i cant stop looking at this picture its really beautiful!!!

  3. This is a wonderful composition Bernice….beautiful, and ugly. Hard to look at and I can’t take my eyes off it.

  5. This painting is so beautiful, and I love the message behind it. The beavers look so sad that their home is being taken over by oil. I think this painting and this website is a great idea to inform people about pollution.

  6. Hello Kayla,

    Thanks for the comment …. I was wondering if this would strike home with anyone. These paintings are like messages in a bottle. We who love the water are called to this work..
