Not Again - IF


I am C.P.Adorio. I am a Sunday painter. I grew up in an island archipelago of more than 7,000 islands, The Philippines. In 1980, the ferry Don Juan collided with an oil tanker that drowned over 250 passengers, among them, my best friend in nursing college. On August 11, 2006, the oil tanker MT Solar I, carrying more than two million liters of bunker fuel, sank off the coast of Guimaras, the island adjacent to Negros Occidental where I was born, causing the worst oil spill in Philippine history. As an emergency nurse in New Jersey and Texas, I have taken care of patients injured by refinery explosions and petroleum storage facilities both in Elizabeth, New Jersey and in Texas. I now live in the gulf coast, in Texas and once again witnessing the worst oil spill in US history. Petroleum is a very important commodity for our livelihood and progress. We need to have safer and more stringent standards in its extraction, refining and delivery. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to participate in this honorable cause. These are pigment ink and colored pencil drawings on 2.5"x3.5" Bristol boards and I will send them matted on 8"x10" beveled black mats.
