Not With a Bang, But With a Whimper...

40 cm square, mixed media on paper. I am having trouble downsizing the image whilst keeping it sharp (on a tablet). I haven't time just now to try on the PC, so I apologise for the blur.



Incidently the title is a line from the end of T S Eliot's poem, "The Hollow Men". The painting is inspired by global climate change.

"This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but with a whimper. "
