Living out here on the lone prairie, those paintings really speak to me.

They say 'RUN AND HIDE!!!'

My eight year old granddaughter noted that the profundity in the paintings come from the contrast of the danger imposed by the storms against the apparent unconcern of the people amid the scenery. It speaks to current world conditions in which we go about, day to day, seemingly oblivious to the extreme danger wrought by global conditions, especially the political.

Looks ironic to me.

Very thought-provoking works. However, why do I think Mr. Brosio isn't the kind of guy who wears a lampshade on his head at parties?

Might I get Biblical for a moment?

"For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away."

---Matthew 24: something
