My painting was drawn with the idea of portraying a message that says that we have to keep the ocean clean and a safe place for sea creatures. In my painting, I have drawn a couple dead fish to display what happens as a consequence of throwing trash into the ocean. On the right side of my painting, I drew all the trash that has collected in the ocean in a cage. This cage is a barrier between the sea creatures and the harmful objects mindlessly being thrown into the ocean that harm them. This is a visual of what I wish would gradually happen in our oceans, that the trash will be separated from the sea creatures and eventually taken out of the oceans. The cage is locked by a lock and key, which the fish that is alive has the key to. This fish is locking all the trash away from his fellow fish who have already been harmed by the trash. As depicted by my painting, my hope for the future is that people around the world become of the serious problems caused by our littering and do something about it.
