Wood Buffalo, Wildfire - Painted next to #Yeg City Hall

May 3, 2016, Noon, Photo taken by a member of the Wildrose party. Ms. Anam Kazim (NDP) MLA for Calgary-Glenmore was the first MLA to receive a painting by me as a gift for her public service to Albertans. I later titled it Wood Buffalo, wildfire. At 5 PM that same day a wildfire began southwest of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. it swept through the community, forcing the largest wildfire evacuation in Alberta's history. I already completed 4 paintings so far this year adding to my Fire and Rain art project that focused my canvases on the wildfires of Alberta.
