'Dusk on the Platte' and 'Yangtze Is an Enigma' by Tif Choate. This art piece has two titles (see description)

Original [SOLD]

A story behind this piece: originally I had read an article on NPR and saw stunning photos of the Yangtze River in China. In 2012 the river suddenly turned blood-red and no one could figure out why. The mystery was broadcasted all around the world and the pictures were astonishing.  Many spoke of the blood river during Moses' time making apocolyptic and forboding statements. And although many suspected pollution, no one could come up with a source. As I began to paint from the stirrings of this, I thought of the ride to my husband's office through Commerce City, where we cross over the S. Platte River in Denver. Everyone whose driven over it there just had a rush of ofactory muscle memory assault.
It is said that the South Platte River is the most polluted waterway in Colorado. Rumors are that industrial facilities released more than 700,000 pounds of toxic chemicals into Colorado rivers that same year, 2012, with a third ending up in the South Platte River. I am an avid lover of the natural landscape and pristine nature of Colorado. I was moved to capture what I felt. Because of this, the painting has two names (you'll see on the back): 
'Yangtze is an Enigma' and 'Dusk on the Platte'.
The reflection of light on the water reminds me that even in the darkest of places, the light always has a way of dispelling it. It's a low key moonlit painting, evoking peace and wonder and also maybe a bit of trepidation.
