I posted the shot on Twitter and my good Twitter friend and accomplished artist, Luminita Serbanescu made a beautiful painting of my ‘magic goose’ and shared it with me. I asked Luminita to write a short piece explaining how the image inspired her and how she created her piece. Below is her response:
Luminita Serbanescu: “With a degree in architecture and relocation to the free world many years ago, I found myself absorbed by a passion for art and environment. Our beautiful blue planet is under attack! Human race was born in the middle of lush forests, powerful rivers and vast oceans and under clean blue skies. Now we are endangering it! I feel that art can and must fight to awaken our long dormant conscience and save the planet! My art shows that desire!”
(You can see another example of Luminita’s work, related to the Mayfly swarm and lovely dance of life in my May 30, 2021 article entitled “The Mayfly Dance.”
