Description by Artist:     I started to paint a pair of eyes with tears and my brush kept painting an elderly man that has a lot of wisdom and with that wisdom comes the tears…

Notes from DaVic Gallery:    Wisdom is humble …. Aristotle said, “I know that I know nothing”. The story I see in this beautiful and moving painting is that in this old man’s wisdom he can see irreparable damage the very children of the earth cause to Mother Earth.  In our quest for progress and better life we destroy our very own future and subsistence.  In our false and misdirected quest for knowledge and betterment we destroy. He knows the difference and he feels very sad to see such change from the old days to today …
