Every species has its role in the world and is special.
Imagine a world where every living being has a purpose and a uniqueness. A world where a lake trout is as majestic as a whale, even if it doesn’t leap out of the water with grace. A world where we appreciate the beauty and the skills of every creature, no matter how simple or obscure they may seem. A world where we recognize that each animal is a vital part of its ecosystem, and that disrupting the balance of nature would be a tragedy. This is the world we live in – a world of wonder and diversity that we should cherish and protect.
The gold leaf, as in many of my other paintings, is intended to emphasize the message of how extremely valuable nature and its various ecosystems are. So gold has not only a decorative but also a symbolic value in the composition.
