The Tragedy of the Commons - SOLD
oil on panel 5" x 7"
On Sundays during the year, I will offer original paintings or drawings at half price. While I do this large boat painting project I need all the space I can get and I enjoy others being able to purchase original art at affordable prices too.
To launch Sunday Sales, I'm offering The Tragedy of the Commons. This little worried cod is my interpretation of the impact of the cod moritorium in Newfoundland and Labrador. The tragedy of the commons title is based on an economics theory by Garrett Hardin, according to which, individuals, acting independently and rationally according to each one's self-interest, behave contrary to the whole group's long-term best interests by depleting some common resource.
Keep an eye on my Etsy store on Sundays and see if you can grab a bargain for yourself or someone else. Remember Christmas is only 129 days away...
