What the frack is going on!
This is the question right now regarding government's position on granting licenses to permit fracking in the Karoo. Politics is a subject I tend to avoid, but I do believe in environmental issues. Especially this environment. I have a particular love for the karoo. I have also produced many paintings of karoo scenes. It is a stunning area in South Africa's heartland, part of this country's heritage and ecologically sensitive. So I would like to encourage all those who care about this area to get informed and try to help the good folks who have made it their mission to save the karoo from irreparable damage. You can visit www.treasurethekaroo.co.za for more info. It is likely that they will have to take formal action soon to halt the process so as much assistance as possible would be appreciated.
I am also donating the net proceeds from my painting, Karoo Windmill, to the Treasure the Karoo Action Group. I have marked the painting and I hope that I will be able to announce the sale and donation on this blog soon.
