2022-08-28, Painter's notes, All Flowers Matter: This is a UNIFOR union brother Garry Soholt, who worked in the printing industry for 23 years. He's an incredible painter and we are both happy to have crossed paths for the first time by the tobacco and flower gardens on the Alberta Legislature grounds.

Four years ago today August 23, 2017, I completed another art show & tell on the Alberta Legislature grounds inside Violet King Henry plaza. That day I gave the gift of art 'Saskatchewan town' practice painting, to a lawyer named Jeremiah who works for The Bronx Defenders, in New York City. A law firm where he says it's not surprising finding bullet holes in the walls the next day. This was a practice painting I did inside the Art Gallery of Alberta. This September my wife Sarah begins her journey chasing her dream of one day becoming a lawyer too.
