West Coast Trail, Tsusiat falls, was the center milestone to my lifes legacy

2020-01-13 Facebook: love the sunset or is that fire???-Mom  

May 3, 2016, Nood hour, Fire & Rain art project, Art Show and Tell. 

In a rain forest, it's likely the sunrise facing east, but it could be wildfire if this was Alberta. I do believe Alberta is going to see a spike in wildfires this 2021. I kind of predicted it in January 2016. Remember it was May 3, 2016, when Fort McMurray's evacuation of 83,000 took place. I had already painted 4 wildfire paintings on the Alberta Legislature grounds and in front of City Hall. I was banned from painting on the Legislature grounds and threatened police action by the City and by the Alberta Government's Ministry of Infrastructure manager. 2016 (Banned 4 times) Fire and Rain art project.

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
