'The Mare' mural 
This mural on primed linen canvas measures 2.5 m X 1.5 m and represents a large, almost lifesize mare. 

Some sort of animal goddess of Nature. Predominantly oil based, it has been completed in July 2008, and holds a discourse on climate change. Waters are rising onto a conurbanisation at her feet, grasses are growing with the intensity of flames at her belly. Her mirror image, Technology, appears to the right, in aluminium paint, from behind a veil of silver rain, bringing hope, or perhaps instead, disaster.
