Nature artist tells litter bugs to fuck off

“A few years ago when I painted it over five days I saw three people,” said Foster. “It was quiet and mysterious, a magical place. Social media has turned it into a must-see experience. People picnic all over it, leaving litter in their wake. Excessive tourism can destroy a place.”

This somehow makes me want to read Wallace Stegner, “All The Little Live Things”. Also my Germanic yogi friend translates the surname of leading social media Sauron as “sugar” “mountain” which got me thinking of “Big Rock Candy Mountain”, Harry McClintock, Burl Ivez, “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” and back to Stegner (“…lemonade springs”). 

Artist guy was on cover of PAW today which knee-jerked me into accusations of pay to play.
