2016 Banned Fire and Rain art project, painter's blog

'We sink, we swim, we rise, we fall, we meet our fate, together'-Joe Clark. #Alberta 'The Crumpling Umbrella' by Doug Brinkman, this is the signature painting to my 2016 Fire & Rain art project on Alberta #wildfires & #floods. ALBERTA REPORT A #WILDFIRE TOLL-FREE 310-FIRE (3473)

I began planning my 2016 Fire & Rain art project, Alberta #wildfires #floods after an Aug 26, 2015 Globe and Mail news story that headlined 'Alberta Air Quality Worse than Beijing and New Delhi' 'Fort McMurray, The Beast' #OutsiderArt #AbLeg banned art.


My first painting and interview took place by the ice rink at Edmonton City Hall in January with a man who described his experience escaping the flames from the Slave Lake wildfire. #AbLeg banned 2016 Fire & Rain art project, Alberta #wildfires #floods.
'Wildfire' by Doug Brinkman January, 2016.
