About... "Unsettled" from The Transition Series

Every now and then, I receive a comment on my work which so clearly describes my intention in creating the piece that I am left equally gratified and astonished. I posted this painting online and a Facebook friend, Anthony Taylor noted the following...

The suburban daydream being undermined by climate change and the population boom? Solipsism being undermined by unintended consequences? I see parody and social satire in your work that reminds me of Grant Wood!

I had to look up solipsism which Webster's describes thus: a theory in philosophy that your own existence is the only thing that is real or that can be known.

Well, that entirely works for me. Thanks Anthony.
