My January Winter Painting Project - Bridging The Gaps

2019-01-12 I think of #FirstNations #consultation with my painting.  I think of #pipelines and I think of road blockades. The construction of the new Walterdale bridge divided the ppl of Edmonton and it's first nations community over sacred burial grounds under the construction site.

Literally cool (0 C) to be adding more paint to an old painting outside the Alberta Legislature today. I started this painting January 2015 on location in front of the construction site for the new Walterdale bridge. I love the new bridge but miss the old green metal pig as one City councilor described it when deciding it's fate "you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig in the end" See if you can spot the lone Canada goose in the video...
