114 / hope etc

A couple of my black & white paintings from the 1990's;
Above was based on a Sanskrit poem, which begins
'Hope is a river'    (can't find the poem)
I'd say the message is, essentially  'give up hope, & despair'..

This was a complicated design about good & bad, 
gods & demons, & perceived differences, generally.
Was choosing images to put on my new iPad mini, today.
Because of the recent Earth Day, I found these two.
