2021-04-16 Painters Log (Friday Climate Action) Sunshine and blue skies, temperatures plus 17 C. Day 1: On the 57th birthday, (Hon) Rachel Notley, former Premier, now leader of the Loyal Opposition, added a stroke of orange with my Dad's stolen putty knife, behind whats now appears to be the Alberta Legislature dome. History of ART: recycling, stealing & by chance, the first coat of paint was added to 'Violet King Henry plaza No New Normal' This abstract already had partially painted circles when it was found in a dumpster by my friend Ingrid, lucky for me is into recycling. Hours later, after doing a photoshoot of my new paint project by the Pillar of Strength, back lawns of the Alberta Legislature, a young shirtless lad, about 10 yrs of age ran up to me holding a paintbrush saying "I found your paintbrush in the grass..." Wow, "thank you," I said, while I could see his mom and dad off in the distance waving. I lost this brush weeks ago while painting 'George W, Bush and Jason Kenney' on the snow-covered grounds of the Legislature. History of Art Recycling, Stealing, and by Chance!

Injured white wolf limps along the abandoned pipeline worksite. My current Misty HeART project on Humanity & Legacy is opening up doors I did not expect. The project does not necessarily aim at Alberta politics, so much as it ventures into the dark rooms of myself. It's opening doors that have been locked for years. I've stopped drinking alcohol to keep my head clear during this creative adventure that is certain to have good lessons. #outsiderart #intuitiveart
You make a film (Painting) and always hope you're going make "Citizen Kane" or "The Bicycle Thief." You make the film, (Art) and for one reason or another, one clicks and one doesn't, but it's out of your control completely. Woody Allen
