Day 2,  9:am Nov 11, 2018 "Armistice - Not a bystander 
#Armistice100 #LestWeForget I'm holding a medallion Grenadier Guards 17179.A.T. BRINKMAN. I think he was 19 when he was killed in WW1. I'll hold this close during the 21 gun salute this morning at the #Ableg.

Partially completed Armistice - Not a Bystander: A streak of light passes over the right shoulder of the costumed WW1 soldier, towards the painting of a lone ghost by a tree. The ghost is watching Albertan's commemorate and remember those who defended our nation and our freedoms. ❤️🥁📢 In 2016 my art was banned from being shown in public places 3 times from our Alberta Legislature, threatened police action by city hall. It took 46 days of pickets to get my freedom back from the authorities who hated my freedom. We must always remember everyday those women and men who defended our nation against those who hated our freedoms.
