Driving on empty highways, seeing empty streets and vacant windows of highrise buildings, my feelings were this is what the end of human life on earth would look like.  Epidemics and nuclear weapons combined with our contrary human nature make this a very real scenario.  I worked with layers of monoprinting and found my conifer trees looked more like missiles which is rather apt. Missiles of disease and as weapons of destruction towards each other.  Survival is down to all of us.
