My old town didn't have any big business and no refineries. So when I moved to my new town I was a little shocked to see all these factories belting out thick plumes of black smoke. The thought for this picture developed in my head for about 2 weeks before I actually put it to paper. It makes me so sad to think we are poisoning our world. I developed asthma since I've moved here and I can't help but think it has something to do with the production plants that are about four miles from my house. I am so glad you appreciate this piece, it really means a lot to know that people see this picture for what it means and not just as a pretty fairy pic. lol.
The really sad thing is we DO live in this state...it's just not as obvious as what you see here. Every year more and more children come down with asthma and allergies. We are slowly poisioning ourselves. I am very glad you like this
