Cry me a river Californiaby Olivia Osborne

As part of the California Drought series-I did a series of paintings concerning the current drought problem in California entitled : Cry me a river California.
I created the Californian scenes with watercolours on canvas, then encapsulated each in glass resin. The sky is mimicking tears and creating a river (body of water) that runs through the canvas. I used unconventional colours as I currently reside in LA so it reflects its effervescent sunset colours and people's personality.
The main theme was “trap and protect” the water-tinged art to suggest the need for sustainability and further prove- look, water can even be preserved in art.
