Aliens by Tsusiat falls, January 1, 2020 - January 1, 2021 Skaters on ice

Aliens by Tsusiat falls Backside of "Skaters on Ice" 

'Skaters on ice'  by Doug Brinkman, January 1, 2020-January 1, 2021 
2020-01-05 (day 2) Back of 'Skaters on ice.' This is my second year painting on the backsides of other completed paintings to practice building my confidence and honing my painting skills. I also do this to avoid shopping inside art supply stores during COVID-19. Painting by the Alberta Legislature next to the ice rink since new years day, my painting is starting to resemble a waterfall, specifically, Tsusiat falls remembered from the days I hiked the West Coast Trail in 1996, 1997, and 2000. ‘Skaters on ice’

West Coast Trail
Diamond willow
Diamond willow
Hold me up
so not to fall
diamond willow
diamond willow
take hold my body
so I stand tall
guide me safe
with in my hand
walk me steady
throughout the land
