Artists against Wind Turbine Installations:
Artists are the very talented among us who are able to observe, appreciate and record on canvas what they see.
Unfortunately in this day and age the majority of us are too enwrapped in our hectic daily lifestyles to stop, relax, sit-back and observe the beauty of our surroundings. Thank God that we do have such talented people, to record for posterity, the beauty of our landscapes and seascapes which we normally see daily and accept, without appreciating.
