MICHELLE NOLAN “For many of us, nature has provided inspiration, solace, joy and nourishment without asking for much in return.  We cannot be selfish in regards to this relationship.  For, like with all relationships where one gives and the other receives, it will eventually fade away.  And then where will we be?”

Concha Alonso Dubon: “Nature and our environment are the grounds for my memories, its light, its color, its smells…collecting earth with my fingers… and of course contemplate it observe it.  Since I am a child have  memories of the garden of my house, of the beach where I use to swim, and of the scent of  canes, the grass and the salt of the sea…it is when I remember these that I paint nostalgically”..

We need a drastic change and we need it fast. We cannot wait for society and commercial enterprises to help us cut down on buying or using. Let us do it ourselves.
